I wasn't commenting on the weak_alias call, but on the hidden_weak one.

If you have hidden_weak (mq_timedsend), you also need 
lib<name>_hidden_proto (mq_timedsend) in the internal header (and vice 
versa, hidden_proto implies you need hidden_weak).

You don't need hidden_weak (mq_timedsend) unless there is an *internal 
call to mq_timedsend from within the same library that defines it*.

Since such an internal call could just use __mq_timedsend instead, you 
probably don't need hidden_weak / hidden_proto for mq_timedsend.

(If you don't have an internal call to __mq_timedsend, you don't need the 
hidden_* for that name either.)
