[Linux-ia64] epilogue count exceeds number of nested prologues

Hi all,

While trying to compile mozilla with libffi, the configure phase dies
with a message:

Error: Epilogue count of 4294967296 exceeds number of nested prologues

I see that this message comes from a patch submitted by David in
February. Is libffi broken? What is needed to fix it?

The offending assembly code is attached. it's the ".restore sp" near
the end that is triggering the error.
