With your patch this looks nearly like the common code variant. I did
some code archaeology and this function is unchanged since ~17 years.
When it was introduced it was close to identical to the x86 variant.
All other architectures use the common code variant in the
meantime. So if we change this I'd prefer that we switch s390 to the
common code variant as well.

Right now I can't see a reason for not doing that, but I might be
wrong of course. So, could you please provide a new version which just
removes this variant and makes s390 use the generic one too.

We'll see if there is any fallout...
