After some debugging, this change has turned to be wrong.  syscall.c

Well, it didn't achieve the desired behavior. :)  A4-A7 where never
saved before, this just saved them someplace not useful to syscall.
So it didn't make things worse but didn't make things better either.

That's since been fixed (in the past few hours).
