Every architecture passing arguments in registers use it's own va_arg

i386 being such a crazy creature.

ppc does this, in fact that was the motivation for this testcase.

I see, it has it's own implementation tought as the default is simply broken. Can you please check whether my new code makes it possible to remove the altivec conditional inside rs6000_va_arg?

I was arguing that the code shall be safe in a way that it should not
break any existing port as it would be either broken or never trigger
this code.  This still seems to hold.

I'm running a quick testrun now removing the conditional. I think I agree that the patch shouldn't break anything.
