I tried it with two compilers, one older than yours and one newer:

.ident "GCC: (GNU) egcs-2.91.66 19990314/Linux (egcs-1.1.2 release)"
.ident "GCC: (GNU) 2.96 20000724 (experimental)"
The command lines were:

gcc -S -O2 test4.c
kgcc -S -O2 test4.c

In both cases, the memory read occurs before "zzz".
