This should depend on the machine. I.e., the typedef for jmp_buf should be
completely in machine/setjmp.h, not only the length of it. This way, you
could even have more sophisticated jmp_bufs, e.g. on machines with most
registers 64 bits, but one or two with 32 bits, which would otherwise
require some hackery.
