Once again, "it boils down to the fact that getcontext always returns
failure to ppc64 program. There is nothing we can do about it, you just
have to accept that this particular thing doesn't work on MacOS
X/ppc64." getcontext is part of libc equivalent, which is why there is
nothing that can be done about it.
