It is a compromise. inline asm is an GNU extension, but other
compilers support (part) of it. This is a small change to make another
free compiler able to use glibc. So
*) This will have no bad effect on glibc with normal gcc (doing some
testing for sanity check)
*) The change is minimal an requires no effort to maintain
*) Makes two free software project work better with each other
