    Ok, but I've seen only one that I'm completly unhappy with. Can you think at
    one case where it's better to push the parameter on the stack instead of
    passing them through the callee clobbered ebx/eax/edx? Saving the pushes makes
    a relevant performance difference (that's why we have FASTCALL in kernel to use
    the sane calling convention even with the <2.95 gcc in fast paths).
