It's crashing on this apparently.

0x000a4702 <hipe_bifs_get_hrvtime_0+74>:        movapd %xmm0,-56(%ebp)

According to the movapd description:

66 0F 28 /r MOVAPD xmm1, xmm2/m128
Move packed double-precision floating-point values from xmm2/m128 to  

66 0F 29 /r MOVAPD xmm2/m128, xmm1
Move packed double-precision floating-point values from xmm1 to xmm2/ 

So unless I'm mistaken, movapd shouldn't have been used with -56(% 
ebp), correct?

Is there something wrong with HiPE code generation?
