Rather more than a handful.

The ratio of function prototypes without extern to
function prototypes with extern is currently ~2.5:1


Standardization without extern
Line count reduction (~10%)
Miscellaneous neatening at the same time
Removal of all unnecessary externs from include/net

There are ~8500 instances in include/
There are ~1500 instances in include/net/

After this series, 0 in include/net/

Start somewhere, go from there...

$ git grep -E "^\s*\bextern(\s+\w+){1,4}\s*\(\s*[^\*]" include/ | wc -l
$ git grep -E "^\s*\bextern(\s+\w+){1,4}\s*\(\s*[^\*]" include/net/ | wc -l
