* at the top of the kernel process stack.
* - partial stack frame: partially saved registers upto R11.
* - full stack frame: Like partial stack frame, but all register saved.
* - schedule it carefully for the final hardware.
* Some macro usage:
* - CFI macros are used to generate dwarf2 unwind information for better
* backtraces. They don't change any code.
* - SAVE_ALL/RESTORE_ALL - Save/restore all registers
* - SAVE_ARGS/RESTORE_ARGS - Save/restore registers that C functions modify.
* There are unfortunately lots of special cases where some registers
* not touched. The macro is a big mess that should be cleaned up.
* - SAVE_REST/RESTORE_REST - Handle the registers not saved by SAVE_ARGS.
* Gives a full stack frame.
* - ENTRY/END Define functions in the symbol table.
* - FIXUP_TOP_OF_STACK/RESTORE_TOP_OF_STACK - Fix up the hardware stack
* frame that is otherwise undefined after a SYSCALL
* - TRACE_IRQ_* - Trace hard interrupt state for lock debugging.
* - errorentry/paranoidentry/zeroentry - Define exception entry points.
