Best practices are to have a patch that can be used on all architectures
so that it can be submitted upstream. When you need architecture specific
behaviour, then you need code that will test some architecture-specific

In C you would usually use the preprocessor's #ifdef directives. If you
need more guidance, then you need to provide more details.
