clang does not presently support the "v" constraint we want to use to
get the result from $3, and trying to use register...__asm__("$3") to
do the same invokes serious compiler bugs. so for now, i'm working
around the issue with an extra temp register and putting $3 in the
clobber list instead of using it as output. when the bugs in clang are
fixed, this issue should be revisited to generate smaller/faster code
like what gcc gets.
the fields in the mcontext_t are long long (for no good reason) even
on 32-bit mips, so the offset of the instruction pointer (as a word)
varies depending on endianness.
basically, this version of the code was obtained by starting with
rdp's work from his ellcc source tree, adapting it to musl's build
system and coding style, auditing the bits headers for discrepencies
with kernel definitions or glibc/LSB ABI or large file issues, fixing
up incompatibility with the old binutils from aboriginal linux, and
adding some new special cases to deal with the oddities of sigaction
and pipe syscall interfaces on mips.
at present, minimal test programs work, but some interfaces are broken
or missing. threaded programs probably will not link.
