It seems to be done with "bv,n    %r0(%r1)". I understand bv
is branch-something, %r1 makes sense, but I am not sure about %r0.

I would have something like this:

#ifdef PIC
        ldw     HPPA_FRAME_EDP(%sp), %r19
        addil   LT%_C_LABEL(setcontext), %r19
        ldw     RT%_C_LABEL(setcontext)(%r1), %r1
        ldil    L%_C_LABEL(setcontext), %r1
        ldo     R%_C_LABEL(setcontext)(%r1), %r1
        bv,n    %r0(%r1)

I will prepare a patch with all libc proposed changes in about 
18 hours.
