I will always support the cleaner solution. If this can be worked around in the dynamic linker, that's where it should go. This has the advantage of not hosing up static stuff, and leaves the possibility open to implement clean per-architecture implementations in the future. I have a feeling glibc does it their way in the (misguided) name of being easier to maintain across platforms... but I'd rather have the 'right' code.
