For implementing, e.g. a context switch between two tasks you will have to safe 
*all* registers and the stack pointer. There is a distinction between different 
uses of the lower and the higher registers concerning the calling convention 
(the called function may safely overwrite a certain subset of registers without 
saving them), but that does not prevent gcc to take profit of all of the

Hi All. Does it somewhere specify that avrgcc and its library routines
should only use a subset of the AVR registers (say 0,1,18-31), or can
the whole 32 be used if required? I ask because it would save a deal of
pushing and popping in a preemptive os if you knew for sure register
subset x would never be used.
