Are you trying to change the caller or the callee?

For the callee, or1k_compute_frame_size calculates the frame size, which 
depends on the frame layout.  or1k_expand_prologue emits the RTL for the 
prologue.  or1k_expand_epilogue emits the RTL for the epilogue.  There 
are also a few other closely related helper functions.  These are all in 

For the caller, I see that the or1k port already sets 
ACCUMULATE_OUTGOING_ARGS, so there should be no stack pointer inc/dec 
around a call.  Only in the prologue/epilogue.
