    Subjectfyi: gcc33-hammer crashes when compiling kvm emulate.c
    Hi,

    While doing a test run with the minimum supported compiler
    I found:

    An old gcc 3.3-hammer segfaults when compiling the current KVM
    emulate.c (or rather in x86_emulate_insns) on x86-64.

    The compiler goes into an endless recursion in validate_rtx and then
    eventually overflows the stack and dies.

    I minimized a test case, but didn't find a workaround
    (minimized test case http://halobates.de/emulate-min.i)

    My guess it's related to some of the inline assembler uses.

    This might be an excuse to bump the minimum compiler version again.
