Hi Chad,

My interpretation has always been that the prototypes and calling
conventions of the intrinsics themselves are merely notional. If the
program ever gets into the state of having to call one of them,
something has gone horribly wrong. They indicate the type-checking
desired of a compiler, but not much else (and that's QoI).

That said, it appears the online ACLE I was referring to does date
from 2011. Do you have a more recent one, and does it promote __fp16
to a more first-class status?

If not, the usual approach would be to implement these particular
intrinsics in terms of some macro expansion so that calling
conventions don't come into it.
