[kaffe] Inquiry: Semantics of slot_nowriteback in JIT

I'm playing with implementations of the some of the bytecodes.  While I
know that slot_nowriteback expands to the empty string for the
interpreter, it expands to a function call to _slot_nowriteback for the
JIT configuration.  The question is: what is the purpose of calling the
function?  Note that I am using the rather old kaffe-1.0.7 if that makes
any difference.

Any thoughts or pointers to some documentation would be appreciated.
