    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.

    p.
