and your entire call chain and all automatics on the stack are gone.
And you can't return from disable_car.

Moving the stack in the general case won't work. Better to call
another function -- i.e. disable_car never returns -- that's we do do
in v2 today.

It seems kind of complex and it is very architecture dependent. If we
assume there is no return from disable_car, life is very much simpler.
