Fair enough.  It just means that we don't have the compiler helping us
remember to add both functions at once, so it raises the probability
that someone will add a Linux-only function and forget to add the noop
counterpart.  But as long as we detect it before a release (that's what
release candidate testing is for, right?) we should be okay.

Roman, I'll accept your code with the .c inclusion, so you don't have to
do the extra work of a dynamic dispatch rewrite; now it's just waiting
for a rebased patch.
