LLVM actually supports both variants, depending on the target. The
__aeabi_* functions are part of the ARM "runtime ABI" and largely
independent of AAPCS. For whatever reason, Linux (& Darwin) ended up
not adopting it and using those GNU functions instead.

If NetBSD uses the aeabi ones instead, it probably needs some extra
checks added to the code. I believe ELF targets currently decide based
on whether the final part of the triple is "-eabi" or not (as opposed
to "-gnueabi", ...), though I haven't looked at the code recently.
