It depends on the return code. ENOSYS if it returns an int, and simply
does nothing if it's a void. I don't think any of the current
functions return an error code at the moment though, so I'd just keep
the current behaviour and just call the function if it's set.

You cannot fail in atomic_flush anyway.
