One more thing: adding full support for your architecture to the rseq selftests
also requires to extend tools/testing/selftests/rseq/param_test.c to implement
the RSEQ_INJECT_INPUT, INJECT_ASM_REG, RSEQ_INJECT_CLOBBER and RSEQ_INJECT_ASM
macros for your architecture. Those are simply defining the inline asm operands
and assembly code needed to inject delay loops within the rseq critical sections,
which greatly facilitates testing.

Thanks,

Mathieu
