Frankly, I wasn't able to test in the field yet as replacing the libs
there is non-trivial. But I was able to observe that only one set of
functions is used - which is logical considering the weak marks. And
this breaks due to the static inline initialization.

However, let's mark both functions and variables weak to fix the issue
and avoid leaving unused variables around. Will update my patch in a minute.
