# Perform arch-dependent adjustments to a register name.
# In very specific situations, it may be necessary for the register
# name present in a SystemTap probe's argument to be handled in a
# special way. For example, on i386, GCC may over-optimize the
# register allocation and use smaller registers than necessary. In
# such cases, the client that is reading and evaluating the SystemTap
# probe (ourselves) will need to actually fetch values from the wider
# version of the register in question.
# To illustrate the example, consider the following probe argument
# (i386):
# 4@%ax
# This argument says that its value can be found at the %ax register,
# which is a 16-bit register. However, the argument's prefix says
# that its type is "uint32_t", which is 32-bit in size. Therefore, in

The ARCHES parameter is a linked list (sorted most recently used)

architecture is just a synonym for an earlier architecture (see
