    No, definitely not.

    That said, I think that in order to not break other architectures, and to
    make it even easier to do this transformation, how about we just mark the
    generic version with __weak?

    That way, odd architectures can just continue to call their own versions
    "sys_pipe()", and we don't break them unnecessarily.
