Is there a gcc bugzilla for this? Shouldn't that be mentioned here?

Also, we use "asm goto" together with "m" all the time in the kernel.
In fact, it's the most common case, with the RMWcc ops being generated
with that. I realize that we don't use the gcc thread-local storage
for them (we often do use our *own* thread-local storage), but it
would be good to have that gcc bugzilla to see why it can only affect
those user level "__thread" cases..
