Perhaps I'm missing something, but this sequence of calls in emitptrargsmap looks suspect:

	if fn.IsMethod() {
		onebitwalktype1(fn.Type.Recvs(), 0, bv)
	if fn.Type.NumParams() > 0 {
		onebitwalktype1(fn.Type.Params(), 0, bv)

If I'm reading it correctly, this will overwrite the Recvs bitmap with the Params bitmap.

Also, after emitting that bitmap, we do:

	if fn.Type.NumResults() > 0 {
		onebitwalktype1(fn.Type.Results(), 0, bv)
		off = dbvec(lsym, off, bv)

But we don't clear bv first, so any set bits from recvs/params will still be set.

emitptrargsmap is only called from assembly functions, which are unlikely to have methods and which are often nosplit, which is possibly why this hasn't caused visible problems yet (?).

cc @mdempsky -- does this code look right to you, and if so, what am I missing?

I think that code is fine.

We create that bitmap to implement GO_ARGS and GO_RESULTS_INITIALIZED from runtime/funcdata.h. The first bitmap (recvs+params) is to represent at function entry (when only params are live), and the second bitmap (recvs+params+results) is to represent once the results have been initialized within the assembly code.

It's okay to call them all like that because function parameter fields have their Xoffsets set according to their frame offset.

Thanks, @mdempsky. We should add a comment in the code; re-opening this for a doc fix in 1.12.
