Hmm, that's only a list of interrupt procedures. After the declaration
there are some assembler seetings to have default values - OK, now I
think I understand. It's up to the user to let them be set to default or
redefine and implement the IRQ procedure.

No, it hasn't. I have read too many source files today. So there is only
the declaration stuff for accessing the internals of the SoC, timers,
peripherals and the like, OK.
