Linux PPC64LE: argument passing problem when passing 15 floats in native call

Hi all,

seems like the ABIv2 calling convention needs different treatment for float arguments.
The following native call test passes 15 float parameters, but the native code doesn't get them correctly:

Adding 15 times 1.0f resulted in 13.0f on a LE machine. The BE machine correctly returns 15.0f.

Best regards,
