Not intended, thanks for noticing.

Probably not, then again i'd have to recheck PPC64 ABI for DI/struct
returns to be sure, then again QEMU doesn't sue those. Anyhow...

This is most certainly is just as in correct as having it at [2] and
not initializing element N1 since main tcg proper never invokes ARRAY_SIZE
on tcg_target_call_oarg_regs...

They aren't used in PPC32 case either, i'll whack them.

I think TOCs are a lot different in ppc-elf64abi and Mach-O one, that
would explain why it fails so early

Unfortunatelly i don't have access to MacOSX on a PPC64 so you are on your
own there.
