They should be cleaned up soon ... The reason they exist is because,
at the time, not everything supported weak symbols.  Now that we're
all ELF[*], we all support weak symbols, so the indirect stuff can go.

[*] Except ns32k.  The general consensus the last time this was brought
up is that ns32k is to be de-supported (but not deleted from the tree)
until the people interested in that platform do the work to modernize the
port (this is primarily toolchain work).
