Well, the problem certainly ceases to be when I fix the declaration to
match the definition, but I'm not entirely sure I understand what the
intended purpose of using that attribute was, as it fails to make
sense to me the way it is right now. Furthermore, I don't quite grok why
this only seems to affect amd64 - so I'm a bit relucant to file a PR under
pkg- for it with a fix. I'm afraid that I'd be breaking things somewhere
