I agree.
The former is probably the intention
according to this commit:

commit ae984d72e0632782dd98c3fcf469b9045ad0d449
Author: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
Date: Tue Dec 9 01:07:09 2008 -0800

sparc: Unify strlen assembler.

Use the new asm/asm.h header to help commonize the
strlen assembler between 32-bit and 64-bit

While we're here, use proper linux/linkage.h macros
instead of by-hand stuff.
