It doesn't. On at least one ABI, the this pointer is passed in a different
register than the first parameter.
In any case, you can't do that for virtual functions anyway, because the PMF
of a virtual function doesn't contain the function's entry point, but the
offset in the virtual table.
You'll need to wrap each C++ function that you want to call with a full extern
"C" function whose body you'll generate. You need to have a C++ code parser
and a binding generator. Take a look at how the Python bindings are generated.
