Commit 0bd3f7e5d12fdbfb5bf4aa4a4169c67bfd92c988 changed c/src/lib/libbsp/sparc/shared/irq_asm.S in a way that allows the current register window of the interrupted code to be stored in its own stack frame, instead of in the interrupt stack frame, as expected by simple_return.

To avoid this, interrupts must stay disabled until after the "mov %sp, %fp" instruction is executed.

That instruction points the %sp of the interrupted code to the ISF, so a window overflow puts the register contents there(at CPU_STACK_FRAME_*). The correct %sp of the interrupted code is restored from the ISF_I6_OFFSET of the ISF during simple_return.

In the non-smp case, simply exchanging the whole stack switch with the code manipulating the psr works.

I am pretty sure this bug is fixed in the current SMP code.
