Use of la_pltexit()

There are some limitations to the use of the la_pltexit() family. These limitations stem from the need to insert an extra stack frame between the caller and callee to provide a la_pltexit() return value. This requirement is not a problem when calling just the la_pltenter() routines, as. In this case, any intervening stack can be cleaned up prior to transferring control to the destination function.

Because of these limitations, la_pltexit() should be considered an experimental interface. When in doubt, avoid the use of the la_pltexit() routines.
