Depends what you want. It looks like you do:

"result" as output from the asm is in %rax, and the compiler will
shuffle that to wherever it needs it as the function return value. That
part will work fine.

But how you are accessing %r8d is not correct, that needs to be a local
register asm (or r8 be made a fixed reg, probably not what you want ;-) )
