Hi all,

so, I've pushed the string functions as well. Looking at the remaining
assembler files, those all need to be assembler.

Only dlsym could possibly be written in C by making use of a GNU C
feature (__builtin_return_address()), but that has been proposed and
rejected before. All the others require explicit stack control, explicit
instruction control, have non-standard calling conventions, or are doing
something you else you cannot possibly do in C.

So, any comments about the files in my repo before I make patches? And
again, how would you like those patches? I think I will wait until next
year with the patches.
