Looking at the remaining assembler files, those all need to be assembler. Only dlsym could possibly be written in C by making use of a GNU C feature (__builtin_return_address()), but that has been proposed and rejected before. All the others require explicit stack control, explicit instruction control, have non-standard calling conventions, or are doing something you else you cannot possibly do in C. So, any comments about the files in my repo before I make patches? And again, how would you like those patches? I think I will wait until next year with the patches. Ciao, Markus
