My hope is to be able to eventually remove that code in the future
somehow. :)

Well it's probably more future proof, but I don't think I really mind

Oh right! How annoying. :)

Hmm, or maybe given that the only current exception is i386, we are just
better off handling it directly in the function, we can always move to
a table or whatever if there happens to be more special casing in the
future (which I doubt?).
