I checked MIPS compiler on IRIX and it certainly doesn't save
registers except `saved registers' (s0-s7, fs0-fs7) and a few
other special ones. No argument and temporary registers are saved.

Maybe I was just lucky that the compiler allocated the local
variables to the registers to be saved. (I guess the compiler is
likely to use them if the variable is used across procedure calls).
