.hidden __sysinfo

# The calling convention for __vsyscall has the syscall number
# and 5 args arriving as:  eax, edx, ecx, edi, esi, 4(%esp).
# This ensures that the inline asm in the C code never has to touch
# ebx or ebp (which are unavailable in PIC and frame-pointer-using
# code, respectively), and optimizes for size/simplicity in the caller.

# The __vsyscall6 entry point is used only for 6-argument syscalls.
# Instead of passing the 5th argument on the stack, a pointer to the
# 5th and 6th arguments is passed. This is ugly, but there are no
# register constraints the inline asm could use that would make it
# possible to pass two arguments on the stack.
