Hi Dmitry,

During the port, have you found anything that should be refactored and
put into shared code?

One thing that I am thinking of doing is to refactor the code in
macroAssembler_x86.cpp that deals with ValueTypePassFieldsAsArgs.
Hopefully that will make the port to other architectures easier.
