Description Andrey Simonenko 2005-03-21 15:40:02 UTC
suword(), suword16(), subyte() and copyinstr() from i386/support.s
restore "trashed" register %ecx, but this register is not really
trashed in case of non I386_CPU in su*() functions and in copyinstr().

The same situation with the same functions in amd64/support.S.

And the same situation with 4.x, 5.x and HEAD.

Hello, the code in question is using 'rcx' now instead of 'ecx'to restore 
the registers. That might have solved your problem can you please have a look at that please and confirm whether it's still relevant?
