Coldfire register ABI documentation

I'm trying to rewrite some ColdFire assembler routines so they can switch to the Register ABI calling conventions under CW for CF 7.1.2, but I have hit two problems:

- the Build Tools Reference Manual doesn't actually describe the register calling convention, just the standard one.

- nor does it describe what (if any) conditional flags are available; by searching the MSL I have discovered that there is a C symbol __REGABI_, but that doesn't seem to work for assembler source (i.e a .s file)


Is this documented somewhere else; I get the impression I'm looking in the wrong place?
