Ok, a different approach this time, now almost architecture independent.
This won't work on s390 because it does not handle 31 bit pointers, but
it makes it possible to autogenerate the function stubs that are used
on ppc64 at the moment. This is still proof-of-concept code, to see
if the idea makes sense.
