Do you mean for non-pic vs pic objects? As I understand, when libc.a is
built with -fpic (so it's suitable for static-pie), setjmp-longjmp need
to preserve saved TOC at (r1+24). So presumably source code would need
to test #ifdef __PIC__?

Would that work for non-pic, i.e. is (r1+24) a reserved location even in
non-pic mode? If not, you can't overwrite it from longjmp.
