Thanks for the answers.

I hadn't thought about 'static'.
Still not sure it's good practice to include identical code in two
places, but each one is small, so what the heck...

The codebase creates a 'kernel' based on the OS+CPU-arch
and another sub-system ('os') based solely on the CPU-architecture.

It includes the same code in both sub-systems in this case.
