Fix for atyfb and gcc 2.95

After a frustrating day playing with yet more of gcc's uglier and
insufficiently-documented internals, I've found the problem with atyfb. 
By chance and/or better register usage, r0 came up as the base register
passed to aty_ld_le32; gcc currently has no way to detect this sort of
mis-specified constraint on user assembly.  r0 is a valid register for
an "r" constraint, but the proper constraint is actually "b" for base. 
This explicitly disallows the use of r0, so egcs will shuffle around
the registers to do the right thing.
