Like I said before: the flushrs won't help at all.  The real issue is
preserving ar.rnat (which is probably a problem you have not run into

This doesn't sound right.  The local registers of the function calling
setjmp/longjmp are preserved (not the output registers though, of
course).  Can you investigate?
