The i386 is very short of registers and that asm uses most of them.
gcc can't find any scrtach registers to use as temporaries.  It's
lucky that this worked in the past.  I'm not sure that I agree with
Uli that this is no bug in glibc -- it looks to me like this inline
should be disabled or deleted.
