I thought that was the platform you were suggesting it wouldn't work on if
the rounding ability were removed?
Of course it fixes the problem on Mac OS X under x86 too. I didn't check
the regressions there since there are other files that must be fixed
before all the mmx code will compile. But with the patch that file now
compiles and assembles without error.
I am primarily a Mac OS X developer. Sorry for not making that clear. (In
fact I installed a linux distro on my MBP last night just to test this

Those are totally different macros! They never have nop passed into them.
Please note that my patch removes all the '/nop's from the file, without
touching those macros to do so. And that the code still compiles and
produces identical output on linux. And that it fixes the problem under
Mac OS X (i.e. gas version 1.38).
