Re: [PATCH] powerpc: Remove uses of operand modifier (%s) in inline asm

GCC restored the modifier because libc uses it in a public header and
GCC needs to provide backward compatibility while the modifier is
deprecated.  There was no GCC release that lacked support for the
modifier.

Please remove the use of the modifier in GLIBC.  Please don't search
for reasons to preserve it.

Thanks, David
