You know the drill: testcase -> gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/

(In particular up to now it's only speculation in some forum that the asm
really is optimized away, which I agree would be a bug, or if it isn't
merely that regs->eax isn't reloaded after the asm(), which would be
caused by the problem Andreas mentioned)


Ciao,
