Forgot to engage my brain before posting.
Architectures will need to have an include/asm/asm-prototypes.h that
defines or #include<>s C-style prototypes for exported asm functions.
We can do an asm-generic version for the common ones like memset so
there's not a lot of pointless duplication there.
Care to do a patch for x86?
