E.g. __HAVE_ARCH_* = 2 meaning arch provides declaration and
definition (i.e. generic header and source skip theirs), while
__HAVE_ARCH_* = 1 meaning arch provides just a definition, but
the generic declaration and macro (where applicable) are fine (i.e.
only the generic source skips its piece of code).
