My comments were based on the current practical situation, where not 
every segment is reg_t-based. For some it should be easy to correct 
this, but e.g. there are also strings that are embedded in the scripts. 
As we don't want to change the whole script to reg_t, maybe the best 
solution there is to relocate the strings to another reg_t-based segment.
