   Hello,

   This patch eliminates calls to both register_value_being_returned and 
   legacy_return_value by inlining / simplifying the callers.  Turns out 
   there was much duplication of effort with both the caller and callees 
   all performing the same tasks.

This patch gives me a bad feeling.  I had intentionally introduced
legacy_return_value to isolate all the legacy code in a single
function.  Yes, that duplicates some of the code, but I think it makes
the code much, much easier to understand.  It also makes removing the
legacy code much more easier later on.

Mark
