Open up gcc.info and search for `underscore'. You will find one section
showing how to give a C function an arbitrary name in the assembler code:
extern void foo() asm("foobar");
creates a function which in the compiler's assembler output is called
`foobar', no matter what the particular compiler port's convention for
name-mangling happens to be.
