: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.
