Well, the asm statement requires immediates, so if macros are used
variables won't work anyway, but the the code will look more obscurely.

It looks like gcc insists on forcing the constants into registers. The
following patch should work for gcc 3.x. A few warnings will still be
emitted, but the code will get build properly.
I'm applying the change to the CVS as it's good anyway.
