Ok. And I guess you can verify that all versions of gcc do this
correctly for "asm volatile"?

Because since we'll have to work around this problem in the kernel, I
suspect the simplest solution is to remove the "+m" that causes
register pressure problems, and then use "asm volatile" to work around
the const-function bug.

And add a large comment about why "asm volatile" is probably always a
good idea when you have a memory clobber and don't have any other
visible memory modifications.

I do wonder if this explains some of the problems we had with the
bitop asms too.
