Not quite.

I have tried to use libgcc on platforms where it can be used, which
isn't on all platforms.  The argument is that libgcc is the right place
for compiler intrinsics to reside, not klibc.

This doesn't work -- or is woefully inefficient -- on some platforms,
which is why I have written my own versions of some of the common libgcc
functions.  If there is a reason to use them over libgcc that's fine,
but at least please consider what that reason is, first...

Attachment.  Don't worry about it.
