    Indeed. Please don't use pushfl/popfl to save the carry flag. There are
    tons of better ways.

    For example, use "lea" instead of "add" to not write the flags (and add a
    comment). Or save the carry flag in a register with

    sbb %bx,%bx

    ant test %bx later. Or any of a million other _standard_ ways to handle
    this problem.
