Semi-off-topic, I think this asm can be better done with only the
call inside the asm, and the rest handled by the compiler.

    register sal_uInt64 hard_r8 __asm__("rax"); // etc
    register double hard_xmm0 __asm__("xmm0"); // etc

    hard_rdi = pGPR[0]; //etc
    hard_xmm0 = pFPR[0]; //etc
    hard_rax = nFPR;

    asm volatile ("call *%[method]"
                  : "+r"(hard_rax), //etc
                    "+x"(hard_xmm0), //etc
                  : "g" [method] (pMethod)
                  : "memory");

    rax = hard_rax;
    rdx = hard_rdx;
    xmm0 = hard_xmm0;
    xmm1 = hard_xmm1;

Of course, there's still the problem of getting the unwind data correct at
the point of the asm.  I commented about that in the PR you filed.
