On the face of it, this change shouldn't make any difference. But I
think what's going on is that the compiler stores "initial" in register
ecx and nowhere else, because it has no idea that the first inline
assembly block will update ecx.

This change evidently works around that problem for the specific
compiler and configuration you tested with, but it seems fragile. I
think the assembly constraints should be updated to properly fix this.
