Hmm. Fair enough.

And the manual does say that it can merge and duplicate those asms
(and suggests using "%=" to generate a unique number, but I guess
"%c0" with __COUNTER__ is equivalent).

I think the gcc manual has changed. I'm pretty certain it used to say
that "volatile" asms would not be "moved significantly". They've
silently changed semantics before too, oh well.
