Shouldn't that prototype always be present?
Any architecture specific implementation better have the same definition.
This is particularly true here since the compiler is going to assume
the default calling convention.

The only time you wouldn't want it is when the architecture specific
implementation is inline asm.
If that were an option the default implementation would need to be
excluded using a different #define.
