I'm not sure that I would call that resolved.

The patch doesn't add any extra ifdefs. It just explicitly provides
empty functions rather than relying on the compiler to optimise
things out.

If gcc 3.4.4 and 3.4.5 really aren't valid compilers to use that is fine.
But it seems rather silly that this somewhat simple change renders
them unusable for this config.

Yes, it does. The code does compile with the following:
