is there work to make the usage of rseq critical
sections portable? (e.g. transactional memory
critical section has syntax in gcc, but that
doesn't require straight line code with
begin/end/abort labels in a particular layout.)

the macros and inline asm in rseq-*.h are not
too nice, but if they can completely hide the
non-portable bits then i guess that works.
