I'm hoping somebody that wrote a jit_emit.h implementation for one of the
architectures could help me deduce some of my errors so that I can get rolling.
My intended focus was in generating all the opcodes and filling in as many of
the JIT routines as possible. So far, it's been a chore just getting a
framework in place. I don't want to burden the mailing list with the little

W/o a more precise description of the troubles you have, two hints:
- always make sure to edit jit/x86_64/jit_emit.h and not the generated
copy in include (this can easily happen by following a tag link with
your editor for example)
- have a look at the usage of JIT_EMIT in existing jit_emit.h files.

I'm just hitting the reply button ;-) - you can find me on #parrot.
