SubjectRe: [PATCH v2 2/2] powerpc/32be: use stmw/lmw for registers save/restore in asm

True, though that could be a lot simpler because the MULTIPLEWORD value
is only used for PPC32, which is always big endian. I'll send a patch
for that.

OK. I've always heard that they should be avoided, but that's coming
from 64-bit land.

I guess we've been enabling this for all 32-bit targets for ever so it
must be a reasonable option.

There is no 32-bit little endian, so this is basically dead code now.

Maybe there'll be a 32-bit LE port one day, but if so we can put the
code back then.

So I'll just drop the else case.

And this could just be:

#ifdef CONFIG_PPC32

It's a pity to end up with this basically split in half by ifdefs for
32/64-bit, but maybe we can clean that up later.

cheers
