No, it shouldn't depend on kernel version, as assuming that registers
are used when not will always be safe.  The reason I didn't enable the
code initially was that gcc-3.0.x (or maybe it was 3.1.x, I forget)
couldn't handle more than 10 asm args.  Whatever the version, I don't
want to support compilation of glibc with old gcc versions anyway..
