after some more thinking about this, I think we can remove
the entire if(), as is done in the attached patch:

Before generating code for a bytecode instruction, we check
whether or not an exception raised during the execution of
that instruction can be caught. Therefore, we can determine
the necessary spills (e.g. when invoking a method or before
a throw statement) in icode.c and generate them there. Since
icode.c already contains the necessary code for this, we can
savely remove the if(), since the spills generated in the if
are already generated by icode.c.

With this patch applied, kaffe still passes the general
regression tests as well as the jit specific tests (with
some additional tests from myself), so it can't be that

No I'm only hoping that this fixes the m68k backend ....
