Odd Calling Convention

I working with an existing code base, and I came across this function that is called durning normal program execution to modify the Interrupt Priority Level (IPL) bits of the Status Register (SR):



__declspec (register_abi) asm unsigned int asm_set_ipl(unsigned int mask)


I'm unfamiliar with this.  What is this convention suppose to be doing?  (Yes, all the code in this function is assembly.)  As nearly as I can tell, this is just stating that this is an assembly function.  Is that all this convention is doing?  I am using CodeWarrior 10.  Thanks.
