:In C (but not C++), "void empty_loop()" is a function taking any number 
:of args, equivalent to "void empty_loop(...)"; the (void) addition 
:prohibits arguments from being passed.  Presumably, this matches a 
:header somewhere?  (Though I didn't see it in the patch.)

    No.  void empty_loop(); is simply an old style K&R definition, while 
    void empty_loop(void); is an ANSI definition.

    So the void should be in there if the idea is to un-K&R-ify the code.
