SubjectRe: GCC proposal for "@" asm constraint
> I see. So Jamie was right and we reproduced a case of miscompilation.

Umm ... "miscompilation"? As in the compiler produced the wrong code
based on the input provided?

int * p;

...

a = *p;

movl p,%eax
movl (%eax),%edx

The assembly code appears to load the address stored at p (keep in mind
that p is a pointer), then use that address to fetch the value which is
placed in a. What do you believe should have been generated by the compiler?
