At the moment, the entry points are done with direct function pointers. The
next step will be using a structure full of function pointers. The third step
will then replace that structure at runtime.
The second and third steps can be done without having to change the code over
and over. Just change the macros.
Besides, there were already macros wrapping SystemCallInterface, so this isn't
that much of a conceptual change.
