New attempt with full clobbers, note that I deliberatly did not change
the order of the output registers. Real output operands still preceede
outputs used for potential clobbering.

I'm not too sure about the EBP push/pop frame, but as folks pointed
out already, we should not trust the SMI code too much.

Stephan
