The Android headers contain information, for each function, when this function
was added in Bionic.

For example, <stdlib.h> contains

#if __ANDROID_API__ >= 23
int mkostemp(char* __template, int __flags) __INTRODUCED_IN(23);
#endif /* __ANDROID_API__ >= 23 */

which means that the function 'mkostemp' is available in Android API 23 and
higher. The API levels translate to Android versions per
So, 'mkostemp' is present in Android 6.0 or newer, and missing in Android 5.1
and older.

There are a few special cases, marked with __RENAME, that indicate when the
symbol used in the header file and the symbol visible to 'nm' are different.
