One interesting piece of assembler is this:


#if defined(__H8300H__) || defined(__H8300S__) || defined(__H8300SX__)
	mov.l	er1, at -er7
	mov.l	er2, at -er7
	mov.l	er3, at -er7
	mov.l	er4, at -er7
	mov.l	er5, at -er7
	mov.l	er6, at -er7
/*  Set IRQ Stack */
	orc		#0xc0,ccr
	mov.l	er7,er6		; save stack pointer
	mov.l	@ISR_NEST_LEVEL,er1
	bne		nested
	mov.l	er6, at -er7	; save sp so pop regardless of nest level

Firstly it uses:

#if defined(__H8300H__) || defined(__H8300S__) || defined(__H8300SX__)

which corresponds exactly to the part in my patch:

Secondly it uses:

I really like to see the trivial inline asm that can be used here.
