It's not a fix. You just turned off a pile of optimisations; you don't seem
to have tried to work out what the real bug is. You can't prove that a bug in
the compiler is gone just because it now succeeds on a test case where it
previously failed.

But the whole regparm thing is just an optimisation in itself. You are
suggesting that many optimisations should be disabled just so that this single
one doesn't fail in a particular case.
