6.4.7 setjmp, longjmp

This library is compatible to the header files that come with gcc - and the jmp_buf in there is not large enough for the FPU registers. So they are not restored! The ANSI standard doesn't even require to restore any of the other local variables (they are restored :-) ), so this is NO incompatibility to the ANSI standard.
