egcs 1.1.1 on said target uses __alloca as the name for the allocate stack worker
function. This is IMHO unfortunate because MS tools seem to have an ordinary
alloca function called _alloca (assembler name __alloca) with completely different
calling conventions. So it is relatively easy to get bogus binaries silently.
It would be better to change that name to something else.
BTW the name is in
config/i386/i386.md: define_insn "allocate_stack_worker"
