Subject: PowerPC Port: Question about magic numbers in sigsetjmp.s

I'm trying to modify the PowerPC port in order to run it on a 64-bit
Little Endian system. I haven't been able to get pthreads to pass the
tests in libc-testsuite and I believe the culprit to be sigsetjmp.s.

I would be grateful for an explanation of the offsets added to register
3 in these two lines in sigsetjmp.s:

stw 5, 448(3)
stw 16, 448+4+8(3)
