boost.coroutine would have to use fcontext_t and its functions instead
of ucontext_t etc.

It does an system call to save the sinal mask.

That would be kind - I'm using debian/lenny versatilepb/ARM926EJ-S
(virtualized with qemu).

On arm/Linux:
Does register r9 have a special purpose or is it used as ordinary
general purpose register?
Where is the 'thread-related data' stored (thread-informations)? On
x86/Linux gs is used; x86/Windows stores a pointer to the TIB in fs.
