Power printf

What is the output of the following program considering an x86 based parameter passing sequence where stack grows towards lower memory addresses and that arguments are evaluated from right to left:

int i=10;
int f1()
static int i = 15;
printf("f1:%d ", i);
return i--;
int i, j;
i = 5;
printf("%d %d %d", f1(), f1(), i);

OKay, I'll bite. I'm not going to run any code.

Firstly the first i=10 is irrelevant, just like the j.

The 1st call to f1() will return 15 and print "f1:15 ".
The 2nd call to f1() will return 14 and print "f1:14 ".

Then you will get "14 15 5", I reckon.
