I can't speak for TI's or Red Hat's plans.  GNU's typical non-custom
embedded runtime is newlib/libgloss, which usually doesn't have that
much in the way of chip-specific headers or library functions.

Yes, for things like that.  They're documented under "Function
Attributes" in the "Extensions to the C Language Family" chapter of
the current GCC manual.
