I'm not sure that it would be _impossible_ just very slow in the general
case. I definately plan on trying to follow Lu's lead in unifying the
function descriptor handling.
I'll do the work as required to get HPPA in line with future changes.
With patches coming for HPPA in the next few weeks to try and bring
everything up to date (Cleaner linuxthreads, sysdep-cancel support,
INTERNAL_SYSCALL* macro's, and the usual list of bits that break).
