Re: Debian #943425: [s390x] setjmp/longjmp do not save/restore all registers in use

This needs to be fixed in klibc.

This is a curiosity.

04:41⎜«jrtc27:#debian-x32» hephaistor: re s390x vector registers, reading the gcc and llvm sources they're
     ⎜    all call-clobbered by default, only the float parts are call-saved
04:41⎜«jrtc27:#debian-x32» so that's why setjmp/longjmp don't need to save/restore them
04:42⎜«jrtc27:#debian-x32» there *is* a vector calling convention, but it's not the default for the ABI,
     ⎜    it's opt-in, and setjmp/longjmp won't be annotated as such

So we indeed need to only save the registers glibc does.
