[PATCH 1/6] arm: LLVMLinux: Add global named register current_stack_pointer for ARM

From: behanw
Date: Tue Jul 08 2014 - 16:16:44 EST

From: Behan Webster <behanw@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx>

Define a global named register for current_stack_pointer. The use of this new
variable guarantees that both gcc and clang can access this register in C code.
