There are special features to handle computers where some of the "registers" form a stack, as in the 80387 coprocessor for the 80386. Stack registers are normally written by pushing onto the stack, and are numbered relative to the top of the stack.
Currently, GCC can only handle one group of stack-like registers, and they must be consecutively numbered.
