Re: poke function ....

when you call the function the return PC is pushed onto the stack.
if the function needs a stack frame, it must create one:

	link	%a6,#<sizeof-frame>
	move.l  8(%a6),%a0
	add.l   12(%a6),%a0
	move.b  19(%a6),(%a0)
	unlk	%a6

the argument offsets change by 4 to account for the saved frame pointer

of course, in this simple example, the function doesn't need
a stack frame...  gcc has an option (omit-frame-pointer) to
tell the compiler not to use frame pointers at all...
