Hmmm...  Stylistically I much prefer to pick up the new element,
move the others up and just drop the new element in where it should
go, rather than doing swap, swap, swap down the list.

Also, I don't think there is enough code there to be worth the bother
of trying to abstract the generic routine so you can plug in different
compare and move-element routines.  The whole sort routine is only 16
lines of code, after all.  Why not just have an ia64-specific version
of sort_extable?  That's what I thought you would do.
