For 64-bit code it is ld that is supposed to synthetize those symbols on the
fly.  gcc uses them (newly, starting with gcc 4.5 as of a few days ago
upstream and gcc-4.4.1-14 in rawhide) even for 64-bit code when -Os, as the
out of line savers/restorers are smaller than inline register
saving/restoring.
