You're asking "how do i win a fight?" and i'd say "avoid the fight" :o)
what i'm saying is you could rename those abstractions, and i'f they are
used too frequently in patches you could search&replace all occurrences at
once with a text editor or grep.
Of course if there is no other circumstance that goes against it.
