I couldn't agree more.  I found 1000s of asm statements in a quick
grep of newlib, RTEMS, and gdb. :(  Hopefully most are single liners.

I accept the fact that we all are going to have to do this but ..

Could someone explain to me why this is a useful change technically?

And is there anyway short of brute force to address this?
