Ok, I will do it. Do you have an URL of a datasheet at hand (since the
x86 code does not work, there must be some difference) ?
By the way, there is a change that I made to the i386 context switching
routine which I think you should make to the x86_64 one: mark all
register as output registers, this prevent the compiler from considering
that the value of a particular register survived the context
