File:   alpha-nat.c fails on Tru64 OS 5.1 due to changed registers in <machine/reg.h>

Note from system header file says:

 * Note that the presence of a definition for EF_SP is used by locore.s
 * to determine whether M_SP should be specified in ".mask" directives,
 * and the setting of this bit 30 in the relevant procedure descriptor
 * "regmask" is the basis for debuggers to interpret kernel exception
 * frames in the old (33-quadword) or new (32-quadword) format.
