    What gcc objects to is stuff like:

    "This is a nice long string
    that just goes on
    and on\n"

    which is illegal in C AFAIU. It does not object to:

    "This long string"
    "spans several lines, "
    "but legally.\n"

    The first form does/did appear in several asm()s. Fix them, send a patch.
