One thing I said is maybe we should remove the "register save" concept
entirely and always giveup. But that would not be suitable for a minimal
fix. I didn't mean it as an alternate fix.

Even if we did always giveup in future, this patch still gives a nicer
API. There would have to be a noticable performance advantage to not
restoring fr0/vs0 after saving before we'd think about changing it back
to clobber, since that encourages foot shooting.
