Yes, please. Sean?

In order to *not* confuse it with the "asm goto with output doesn't
imply volatile" bugs, could you make a bug report that talks purely
about the code generation issue that happens even with a manually
added volatile (your third code sequence in your original email)?

Right now, I don't think we know which ones are bad.

If it was just the "add a volatile by hand" issue, we'd have a good
pointer to exactly which issue it is.

The other bugzilla entries I saw talked about ICE errors - and one of
them is quite likely to be the cause of this, because it really looks
like the code issue is some internal confusion. The asm that Sean uses
doesn't even have an unused result, so even the volatile shouldn't
matter, and seems purely a case of "limiting optimizations partially
hides the issue".

And then us adding another empty asm obviously does just even more of
the same, to the point that now the code works.

So I don't think we actually know which compiler version is the fixed
one. We only know that gcc-11 doesn't work for Sean.
