SubjectRe: [PATCHv2 5/6] jump label: detect %c support for ARM

I'm not sure how this detects properly working %c support. %c support
has been rather flakey on ARM for some time, I'm not sure which version
of gcc was fixed for it.

While this detects the presence of the ICE, previous compilers included
the '#' before the constant, which leads to problems. I think a better
check would be:
asm(".long %c0" :: "i" (&tp.state));

to make sure that it spits out something purely numeric, rather than
something prefixed with a '#'.
