RISC-V Magenta context switch

The code related to RISC-V Magenta context switching can be found in exception.S  and switch_to.h files.
A thread for a CPU is switched by a call to
static inline void riscv_switch_to(struct riscv_thread_state * prev,
                                   struct riscv_thread_state * next)
    __switch_to_aux(prev, next);
    __switch_to(prev, next);
The registers are saved and restored from the riscv_thread_state structure.
 * Integer register context switch
 * The callee-saved registers must be saved and restored.
 *   a0: previous task_struct (must be preserved across the switch)
 *   a1: next task_struct
.section .text
    * $a0 == &prev->arch.stat
    * $a1 == &next->arch.stat
    /* Save context into prev->arch.state */

    /*return to $ra, the new $sp has been set*/
The new thread $ra points to the next instruction after a call to __switch_to inside riscv_switch_to
(gdb) p/x newthread->arch.state
$137 = {ra = 0xffffffff80002f3c, sp = 0xffffffff8114cc80, s = {0xffffffff8114ccb0, 0xffffffff800031c4, 0x1, 0xffffffff800347f8, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0, 0x0}, fstate = {f = {
      0x0 <repeats 32 times>}, fcsr = 0x0}, ti = 0xffffffff8114ae80}
The ret instruction at the end of __switch_to resumes a thread at this address.
The scheduled out thread state has $ra pointing to same address.
(gdb) p/x oldthread->arch.state
$138 = {ra = 0xffffffff8000b3f8, sp = 0xffffffc002e04000, s = {0x0 <repeats 12 times>}, fstate = {f = {0x0 <repeats 32 times>}, fcsr = 0x0}, ti = 0xffffffff8116a9d8}

As you can see 0xffffffff80002f3c is an address of a call to get_current which is a parameter to the assert check after a call to __switch_to.
