[Ffmpeg-devel] [PATCH] '/nop' illegal for old versions of GAS

The problem is that the current /nop seems illegal
by my reading of the manual, so I am guessing here.
doesn't document '/', 'slash' or 'forward slash'
gcc -E shows me that /nop is included literally:
# 702 "i386/simple_idct_mmx.c"
"pmaddwd %%mm6, %%mm1 \n\t" "/nop" ", %%mm4
\n\t" "movq %%mm4, %%mm6 \n\t" "movq 48(%2), %%mm7
\n\t" "/nop" ", %%mm0 \n\t" "pmaddwd %%mm2, %%mm7
\n\t" "paddd %%mm5, %%mm4 \n\t"
so there is no C-macro strangeness going on.
I was assuming that the intent of /nop was a comment.
I was trying a No-OP to investigate the alternative.

If the first non-whitespace characters on the line are not numeric, the
line is ignored. (Just like a comment.)
nop is is not a numeric expression, but to be
perfect, the line should be something like " # nop"?
Sadly, that requires re-writing of the macros.
Hence the comment about removing the rounder
lines from the macros.
