[PATCH] X86 ABI fix for return values > 24 bytes.

The return value's address must be returned in %rax.
i.e. the callee needs to copy the sret argument (%rdi)
into the return value (%rax).

This probably won't manifest as a bug when the caller is LLVM-compiled
code. But it is an ABI guarantee and tools expect it.
