There's a ton of header files that can be included in assembly code and
which also contain C declarations and definitions. This is achieved by
adding a:

#ifndef __ASSEMBLY__
#endif

Blocks around the C code. Especially for smallish or single-purpose files
this is often a cleaner method than splitting the file.

There's more than 40 such headers on x86 alone.
