This is why I suggested looking at the old K&R C support, which is
presumably exactly what you need to be compatible with the SCO compiler.

So look at gcc-2.8.1, grep for flag_traditional... I see code in
default_conversion for arguments.  store_parm_decls and
combine_parm_decls for parameters.  And grokdeclarator for return
values.  The last one is optional, since not all K&R C compilers
promoted return values.  So the default_conversion change seems right. 
The store_parm_decls/combine_parm_decls stuff has changed a bit since
2.8.1, so you might have to look at that a bit closer.

If this is a C front-end specific hook, then putting "always" in the
name is a bit misleading.  Maybe something like
