The architecture vector (gdbarch), usually, but sometimes the target
vector (target_ops).

Why are the register numbers different (and which register numbers)?
That determines the answer to your question.  If it's the dwarf2
mapping, for instance, you'd put overrides in an OS/ABI sniffer in the
Linux tdep file.

I've done a lot of work lately to isolate GDB's internal register
numbering from various external numberings.  You can probably use the
same internal registers in most places now.
