Re: AMD64 ABI compatibility
Thanks for your reply. The gcc compiler uses %rdi, %rsi, %rdx, %rcx
with -mregparm=4, but MS uses %rcx, %rdx, %r8, %r9, so that won't be
enough. Also MS requires some space on the stack to be reserved for
the 4 regs.
Someone has written a wrapper:

I guess this would be an important feature for mingw on AMD64.
Does -mregparm=4 do what you want?
Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
