I don't like how you wrote 'cmp' without a size, especially with none
of the arguments then giving a size either. Usually there's a register
name or something that gives you the size, but not here.

I guess there is some default size that gas will use, but at least
some versions of gas have traditionally errored out instead of
guessing on sizes. Maybe x86-64 doesn't use those gas versions any
more, but still..
