Well, I'm afraid that I cannot help you with the problem, but my
understanding is that eabi and oabi conventions (mentioned by Henry
Vermaak above as far as I could see, not Jonas?) are specifications
relevant for ARM platform, not to x86 machines (that's why I asked the
question about ARM), and thus not necessarily related to your issue.
