Thanks for looking into this :)

No, there is no guarantee for that.
Currently, there is only one caller (indirectly) of this method (JIT::callOperation(Sprt_JITOperation_EZ operation, int32_t op)),
which uses 2 parameters registers, so there is made room for one more parameter.
On the other hand, we probably don't want to add support for several more parameters than needed for performance reasons.

Good point, I believe that would require us to add a new method similar to


which skips using the first parameter register (which is needed for the stack pointer to the return value).

Maybe that is the best way to go?

Fixed in latest patch.
