So a little history:
-On the initial import of amd64/x86_64, the functions existed.
-In July 2006 they were removed in 635872e06f82693646a8d979c423433fa839a656
because i386 didn't have them and they are marked obsolete.
-Then in January 2007, they were added for i386 in
So that's why they're there for i386 and not x86_64. The question is, do we
want them or not? They are completely removed from IEEE Std 1003.1-2008, but
there's still 3rd-party software that's using those functions. My vote is to
keep them and make them available to x86_64.
