    It certainly seems to be gcc version dependent (and I'd not be surprised if the
    exact combo of -O2, -Os, and -mfoo and -fwhatever flags as well). Trond is
    probably right that a memory clobber will force gcc to DTIT (Do The Intended
    Thing, which may be different from a DTRT) regardless of what gcc's code generator
    decides to do....

    % gcc -v
    Using built-in specs.
    Target: i386-redhat-linux
    Configured with: ../configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --enable-shared --enable-threads=posix --enable-checking=release --with-system-zlib --enable-__cxa_atexit --disable-libunwind-exceptions --enable-libgcj-multifile --enable-languages=c,c++,objc,obj-c++,java,fortran,ada --enable-java-awt=gtk --disable-dssi --with-java-home=/usr/lib/jvm/java-1.4.2-gcj-1.4.2.0/jre --host=i386-redhat-linux
    Thread model: posix
    gcc version 4.1.0 20060117 (Red Hat 4.1.0-0.15)
    % gcc -O2 -o setbit.ex setbit.c ; ./setbit.ex
    00000001
    % gcc -O2 -o setbit.ex -finline-functions setbit.c ; ./setbit.ex
    00000001

    Fedora Core -devel tree as of this morning (so sort-of FC5 test2).
