 Yes, its parser fails.
 I have checked throughout the code, there are some other enums in .x files too, but when they are
put in structs, they are specified without 'enum' keyword and everything is fine. For example,
--- cut ---
struct virNetMessageHeader {
    unsigned prog;              /* Unique ID for the program */
    unsigned vers;              /* Program version number */
    int proc;                   /* Unique ID for the procedure within the program */
    virNetMessageType type;     /* Type of message */
    unsigned serial;            /* Serial number of message. */
    virNetMessageStatus status;
--- cut ---
 Here virNetMessageType and virNetMessageStatus are enums. Actually i borrowed fix method from here.
