Also there is no need to resize the register stack frame here, since
this is already a leaf function and there are plenty scratch register
you can use before tap into register stack.  I personally prefer not
to do alloc instruction here.

And I think it would be a lot easier if you implement an intrinsic
function, like ia64_ld16/ia64_st16 and stick them in include/asm-ia64/
gcc_intrin.h and intel_intrin.h.
