If compiling libc-do-syscall.S generates a warning, we should fix it so it
doesn't generate a warning. Any fixes beyond those which fix the warning
are superfluous.

We should not do any active work to support including glibc header files
from assembly unless we have specific requests from users for specific
use cases.

Does that answer your question?
