Seems can not totally avoid the problem mentioned by Frederic, that is
if there are two many functions in the file, and different platforms
care about different functions ;) 

what about Frederic's __time, just replace that __arch_notrace by
__time_notrace, and only consider the time relative functions currently?
Seems this will really make the stuff simpler.
