I'm not sure if it's "worth addressing", __asm__ seems a proper way to
remember that it's _not_ a C99 feature, as long as it works. I have seen
there are a lot of features that Sun Studio (at least the version I have
here) does not handle like GCC does but at least it seems to support the
basic syntax. I guess it's just a matter of working on it...

Oh nice I didn't know there was that, I'd love to take a look.. maybe if
it supports some of the extensions xine uses I might finally be able to
try building that too ;)
