I start to translate in native sparc assembler mode.
I suggest the assembly code would be in a fonction, not 'inline' in a block.
The little transform in config/sparc/jit.h would be:

#define CALL_KAFFE_FUNCTION(meth, obj)                                  \
        asm("   mov %0,%%o0                                             \n\
                call %1,0                                               \n\
                nop                                                     \n\
        " : : "r" (obj), "r" (meth->ncode))

#define CALL_KAFFE_FUNCTION(meth, obj) CallKaffeFunction(meth,obj)
void CallKaffeFunction(meth,obj) /* this is in a separate file */
	... assembler specific compiler in a separate file ...

Maybe it will become more easy to port this code.
