What if %0 already has an offset? It's an "m" constraint, so any 
addressing mode is allowed, e.g. 8(%edx)
-16%0 = -168(%edx)
-16+%0 = -16+8(%edx) = -8(%edx)

gcc devs must have intended to let one offset a memory address, there's 
even a "o" (offsettable) constraint (which is identical to "m" on x86). 
But I can't find any syntax for an offset that won't generate a warning 
some of the time.
