Try this:


This matters in non-trivial loops, for example.  But all current cases
where such non-trivial loops are done with cache block instructions are
actually written in real assembler already, using two registers.
Because performance matters.  Not that I recommend writing code as
critical as memset in C with inline asm :-)
