Adding 'volatile' there shouldn't make any real difference.

I'd double-check the asm constraints for the two pointers.
They are modified by the asm, but the caller's variables
must not be changed.

I think that means they need to be normal 'input' parameters
and the result must be in different register (early clobber?).
Currently the pointers are "+r" - which I think means they
are input-output and any caller-supplied variable is
likely to get changed.
