    Just hint. I remember the time when "memory" clobber option
    was _absent_ in gcc. And we managed to compile kernel with such gcc. 8)
    To all that I understand, "asm" (like function calls) implied barrier
    that time and constraints and clobber option were used only for
    register allocation and reloading.

    BTW Look also into asm-i386/bitops.h and dummy cast to some crap there.
    Are you impressed? 8)
