* This is the entry point for making a system call. The calling
* convention here is that of a C varargs function with the
* first argument an 'int *' to the signal_pending flag, the
* second one the system call number (as a 'long'), and all further
* arguments being syscall arguments (also 'long').
* We return a long which is the syscall's return value, which
* may be negative-errno on failure. Conversion to the
* -1-and-errno-set convention is done by the calling wrapper.
* The syscall calling convention is nearly the same as C:
* we enter with a0 == *signal_pending
* a1 == syscall number
* a2 ... a7 == syscall arguments
* and return the result in a0
* and the syscall instruction needs
* a7 == syscall number
* a0 ... a5 == syscall arguments
* and returns the result in a0
* Shuffle everything around appropriately.
mv t0, a0 /* signal_pending pointer */
mv t1, a1 /* syscall number */
mv a0, a2 /* syscall arguments */
mv a1, a3
mv a2, a4
mv a3, a5
mv a4, a6
mv a5, a7
mv a7, t1
* This next sequence of code works in conjunction with the
* rewind_if_safe_syscall_function(). If a signal is taken
* and the interrupted PC is anywhere between 'safe_syscall_start'
* and 'safe_syscall_end' then we rewind it to 'safe_syscall_start'.
* The code sequence must therefore be able to cope with this, and
* the syscall instruction must be the final one in the sequence.
