/* If true, system calls save and restore all registers (except result
 * registers, of course).  If false, then `call clobbered' registers
 * will not be preserved, on the theory that system calls are basically
 * function calls anyway, and the caller should be able to deal with it.
 * This is a security risk, of course, as `internal' values may leak out
 * after a system call, but that certainly doesn't matter very much for
 * a processor with no MMU protection!  For a protected-mode kernel, it
 * would be faster to just zero those registers before returning.
 * I can not rely on the glibc implementation. If you turn it off make
 * sure that r11/r12 is saved in user-space. --KAA
 * These are special variables using by the kernel trap/interrupt code
 * to save registers in, at a time when there are no spare registers we
 * can use to do so, and we can't depend on the value of the stack
 * pointer.  This means that they must be within a signed 16-bit
 * displacement of 0x00000000.

/* A `state save frame' is a struct pt_regs preceded by some extra space
 * suitable for a function call stack frame. */

 * C calling conventions, in addition to the space used by the struct
 * pt_regs that actually holds saved values. */
