But then we lose the checking for other instructions :-) Unless we start
being nasty and defining a different macro form for RA which can be 0...

I'd rather not go there unless we absolutely have to...

What would be nice also would be if we had a gas option to enforce the
use of % for register names. We'd probably have to struggle a little bit
with gcc inline asm in a case or two though.
