You may have to in the future.
from http://egcs.cygnus.com/spill.html :

--------
One side effect of Bernd's work is that incorrect asms which explicitly
clobber a register that is also mentioned in the inputs/outputs for the
asm will always generate an error on all ports. This is going to cause
linux kernels to fail to build on x86 processors until the linux kernel
developers fix the asms in the linux kernel.
--------

This is new in egcs, so i guess it wont be in 1.1.x but starting with
1.2
or whatever they'll call it egcs most likely wont compile the current
2.1
kernels at all.
