Those platforms who fail, are not (yet) supported or should be
treated as 386, arm, power, sun4 or x86_64 respectively.

Each platform needs an equivalent function in a file called:

9base/lib9/getcallerpc-{hppa,s390,ia64}.c which returns a proper
value for following operation on 386 platform:

        #include <lib9.h>

        getcallerpc(void *x)
            return (((ulong*)(x))[-1]);

Which means returning the calling program counter as ulong.
That is afaik the only platform dependend code which is
necessary for 9base/lib9/qlock.c of 9base.
