Every OS but Windows uses the System V ABI on AMD64.

Don't rely on the return stack pointer being in RCX.  E.g., it's not
the case in my development build.  The only thing you can count on is
that the data stack pointer is passed in in RDI, the address of a cell
containing the FP stack pointer is passed in RSI, and you return the
data stack pointer in RAX.
