   > > BTW, I'm currently trying to solve an issue with sim: my understanding is that
up_head call's the host's setjmp/longjmp, but when inspecting this symbol from Make build,
it appears it is renamed to NXsetjmp so it is using internal definition of setjmp. Isn't up_head.c
the host interface to the simulator? Why is it using the simulated setjmp? Is the host's setjmp
not usable for up_head? (I understand that the simulated nuttx internally provides its own
mechanism for setjmp)
   > I tried that many years ago. It would crash immediately. I forget the details, but
as I recall, there are a couple of issues with with the host longjmp/setjmp for this usage.
For one, the stack is encrypted for security reasons. I forget why this caused the crash,
try it and see.
   > Another problem is the the GNU/Linux setjmp/longjmp is tied into Linux signal handling
in a way that makes it unsuitable for use in the simulation.
   > For the simulation, you need a simple setup/longjmp that just saves the and restores
the critical registers.
   Great, thanks for the explanation!
