Bad wording. Should be: "assembler-implemented" paths.

There is nothing wrong with using C library's routines - they are well
optimized. But if they are relied upon, they have to be respected,
they assume namely that the caller behaves according to the contract.

If you have a real need to do things which are incompatible with the
API contract, then the C library simply is not available.
