Yes, I think we should have already removed them when CONFIG_WERROR
was added in v5.15, the architecture specific logic dates back
to v2.6 times.

I already have a collection of patches to fix up known
-Wmissing-prototype warnings across architectures in the
asm-generic tree, so I'll add this patch there:

    arch: turn off -Werror for architectures with known warnings
    A couple of architectures enable -Werror for their own files regardless
    of CONFIG_WERROR but also have known warnings that fail the build
    with -Wmissing-prototypes enabled by default:
    arch/alpha/lib/memcpy.c:153:8: error: no previous prototype for 'memcpy' [-Werror=missing-prototypes]
    arch/alpha/kernel/irq.c:96:1: error: no previous prototype for 'handle_irq' [-Werror=missing-prototypes]
    arch/mips/kernel/signal.c:673:17: error: no previous prototype for ‘sys_rt_sigreturn’ [-Werror=missing-prototypes]
    arch/mips/kernel/signal.c:636:17: error: no previous prototype for ‘sys_sigreturn’ [-Werror=missing-prototypes]
    arch/mips/kernel/syscall.c:51:16: error: no previous prototype for ‘sysm_pipe’ [-Werror=missing-prototypes]
    arch/mips/mm/fault.c:323:17: error: no previous prototype for ‘do_page_fault’ [-Werror=missing-prototypes]
    arch/sparc/vdso/vma.c:246:12: warning: no previous prototype for ‘init_vdso_image’ [-Wmissing-prototypes]v
    arch/sparc/vdso/vdso32/../vclock_gettime.c:343:1: warning: no previous prototype for ‘__vdso_gettimeofday_stick’ [-Wmissing-prototypes]
    arch/sparc/vdso/vclock_gettime.c:343:1: warning: no previous prototype for ‘__vdso_gettimeofday_stick’ [-Wmissing-prototypes]
    arch/sparc/prom/p1275.c:52:6: warning: no previous prototype for ‘prom_cif_init’ [-Wmissing-prototypes]
    arch/sparc/prom/misc_64.c:165:5: warning: no previous prototype for ‘prom_get_mmu_ihandle’ [-Wmissing-prototypes]
    This appears to be an artifact from the times when this architecture
    code was better maintained that most device drivers and before CONFIG_WERROR
    was added. Now it just gets in the way, so remove all of these.
    Powerpc and x86 both still have their own Kconfig options to enable -Werror
    for some of their files. These architectures are better maintained than most
    and the options are easy to disable, so leave those untouched.
