It's the same thing, the code is taken from kvm_main.c:

static void load_fs(u16 sel)
asm ("mov %0, %%fs" : : "g"(sel)); <--- line 153

static void load_gs(u16 sel)
asm ("mov %0, %%gs" : : "g"(sel)); <--- line 158

It can't generate assembly with asm() constructs it perceives as invalid -- -S
produces the same error.
