Indeed, you even made a major overhaul on the i386 side.  I had also
failed to see that you had already documented `allocai'...

The thing is that programs not using `allocai' would end up with a
gratuitous `sub 0, %sp', but perhaps that's acceptable.


PS: Some of your changesets included changes along with merges, which
    made it harder for me to merge back.
