Please write that as &&? That is more usual, and thus, easier to read.

This outputs as one huge assembler statement, all on one line. That's
going to be fun to read or debug.

loop1 and/or loop2 can be assigned the same register as msr0 or nb. They
need to be made earlyclobbers. (msr is fine, all of its reads are before
any writes to loop1 or loop2; and bytes is fine, it's not a register).
