  'arg_register_p' was added as a way to spill/reload register arguments. See
example usage in check/carg.c

  The functionality you suggest could be done automatically by an optimization
pass. But I am uncertain if it would even be added, just that the infrastructure
is there.

  It would not be supported, but the easiest approach would be to just know
the ABI and use the matching argument register. On x86_64 it defines the
symbols _RDI, _RSI, _RDX, _RCX, _R8, _R9. Otherwise it would be required
to know too much the internals, but for all ports it would be "JIT_RA0
- in1->u.w".

  The best approach should be to extend lightning to define some symbols, for
example JIT_RA0 ... JIT_RAN and JIT_FA0 ... JIT_FAN, then, code could check if
the preprocessor symbols are defined, and generate jit accordingly.  This should
be considered for a new lightning release. For the moment it just
attempts to keep
a simple method for all ports, but really such functionality would
basically only
generate slightly smaller code
