I looked again, and see that we can generate remote_protocol.c from
rpcgen. Currently it seems remote_protocol.c is hacked a bit to remove
some unused stack variables? Why do we need to do such a thing, while
compiler can optimize that for us?

So I guess it is better to have rpcgen does all the job, and leave
everything as it is. We can rename remote_protocol_xdr.c to
remote_protocol.c if you still insist that (but I see no good reason
to do so).
