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.
In C/C++ I know the way to do this, but you cannot always do that in all languages.
In my current case, I can apply on all archs if needed, but I wondered if there was an easy way, seems not... :-(
