As far as I can tell versioning GETREGS also automagically versions
core file format (PT_GETREGS and sizeof(reg) are written in an elf

struct reg is also written in kernel crashdump, but I'm not even sure
someone ever tested kernel crashdumps on sh3, never mind used it :),
so I'm inclined to ignore that issue.
