I tried to define some macros missing in the irix md.h. Thanks to
guilhem pointing out to the use of sigcontext* I was able to define most
the problem remains for
I found no clear presence of a stack pointer place! I temporarily tried
being that element defined as
/* cp0 status register */
I don't have many alternatives, the other elements of the structure are
relative to the coprocessor, where I find a
sc_ssflags /* signal stack state to restore */
or to the system coprocessor registers.
Digging inside the SGI IRIX headers I found clearly stated that
sigcontext * is NOT part of the ABI...
maybe IRIX doesn't have a stack pointer at all for this purpose ?! and
this macro is not needed/useful ?
In any case using this (most probably wrong) choice I was able to
compile much further up to ending with a new error I report separately.
