I've been super busy with work for the past week, so not a whole lot of TI work. I've updated the GCC port document, and annotized some examples.

During this work, I noticed a problem with function with arguments like (long, long, int, long). The last argument, which would spilll over into R7, is being lost. I'm not sure what's going on here.

The other thing I noticed is that non-volatiles were not bring used to store locals, everything was going to the stack. This seems to be a register cost balancing problem. I need to do the math to see where the break-even point is for non-vol versus the stack. This could be tricky.
