It is used; see sw/Library_sw.mk . This location was not found by git
grep because the source files are listed without extension there.

If a source file really contained only unused functions, it would likely
have been found (and removed) with the help of callcatcher. Of course,
that would not help if the source were not compiled at all (and we found
such files on several occasions in the past)... I wonder if it would be
possible to construct a (more or less) complete list of used source tree
files from make dependencies; something that could be scripted and run
periodically to ensure we are not accumulating unused cruft...
