SubjectRe: [PATCH] i386/audit: stop scribbling on the stack frame
From
Date
Yes, I will look at this tomorrow.

For the record, the calling convention is that eax, edx, ecx are clobbered, and used for the three first arguments in that order. eax, edx are used for the return value(s).

The exception is for __asmlinkage functions where all arguments are passed on the stack; something I would like to get rid of but would require changing a lot of assembly code.

The same registers are still clobbered, though.
