Hmm, maybe. Personally when I see "24(r1)" what my brain reads is "stack TOC
save slot", but maybe I've been spending too much time with powerpc assembly.
R2_STACK_OFFSET is actually new, pulled out from the module code by Torsten.
Other code uses STK_GOT to mean the same thing. I don't really like either
name, so I'll probably leave do a clean up once this is in.
