 81Register usage notes, originally from John Marvin, with some additional
 82notes from Randolph Chung.
 84For the general registers:
 86r1,r2,r19-r26,r28,r29 & r31 can be used without saving them first. And of
 87course, you need to save them if you care about them, before calling
 88another procedure. Some of the above registers do have special meanings
 89that you should be aware of:
 91    r1: The addil instruction is hardwired to place its result in r1,
 92	so if you use that instruction be aware of that.
 94    r2: This is the return pointer. In general you don't want to
 95	use this, since you need the pointer to get back to your
 96	caller. However, it is grouped with this set of registers
 97	since the caller can't rely on the value being the same
 98	when you return, i.e. you can copy r2 to another register
 99	and return through that register after trashing r2, and
100	that should not cause a problem for the calling routine.
102    r19-r22: these are generally regarded as temporary registers.
103	Note that in 64 bit they are arg7-arg4.
105    r23-r26: these are arg3-arg0, i.e. you can use them if you
106	don't care about the values that were passed in anymore.
108    r28,r29: are ret0 and ret1. They are what you pass return values
109	in. r28 is the primary return. When returning small structures
110	r29 may also be used to pass data back to the caller.
112    r30: stack pointer
114    r31: the ble instruction puts the return pointer in here.
117r3-r18,r27,r30 need to be saved and restored. r3-r18 are just
118    general purpose registers. r27 is the data pointer, and is
119    used to make references to global variables easier. r30 is
120    the stack pointer.
