Hi,

I'm probably missing something very obvious so the subject could have
been "Dumb question of the week". So please be nice when answering ;)

I'm wondering why we need to save/restore the static registers
(s0...s7) when dealing with some  signal system calls. Specially all
of them which are declared by using save_static_function() macros.

Thanks
