seriously, IIRC ICC which this is about cant handle the gazillion asm
arguments either, so irronically it could be that there is not a single
case, not even obscure which would work any better afterwards

and compilation with gcc 2.95, 3.0, 3.1, ... would be totally broken.
gcc 4.* and gcc svn might
with some luck be able to compile the code as long as you dont try to use
PIC on x86-32. That is, with a huge amount of luck your suggested change
would cause some poor soul a huge amount of work, break gcc 2.95 and gcc 3
support and cause some minor speedloss with bad luck it wont work at all
afterwards with any compiler

but you are free to proof me wrong :)
