The simplification would not have been big: IRIX is just one among 12 platforms.

The issue here was that we attempted to have a unique code for all 12
platforms, and this requires a systematic approach and a bit of constraint
solving. This kind of constraint solving does not scale: it may not work with
50 platforms.

The alternative would be to split the set of platforms into groups (say,
glibc platforms, BSD platforms, Solaris, etc.) and use a #if branch for each
platform group. The result would be longer code, but way more maintainable.
