well these arent the only occurances of this syntax in ffmpeg
also i would like to see benchmarks, gcc has the tendency to do stupid
things if it can and here it can ... (=more freedom with gcc generally means
worse code, thats just my experience with gcc, its not always true, also
gcc should be getting better as the version numbers increase ...)
also i dont see how this additional freedom could lead to better code
here, it can just lead to worse code if gcc doesnt realize that things
can be addressed via the same register
