I consider gcc 2.95 support to be useless, and the attempts to maintain
support to be actively harmful when they interfere with useful
development. Because of that I make no attempt to avoid breaking gcc
2.95. But I do not intentionally write code to break it. If gcc 2.95
breaks, it's because it fails to compile what I consider to be the
overall best way to write the code.
Unless compiler issues with more relevant compilers turn up I consider
the way I gave to be the best way to write the asm. I explained the
reasons in the earlier mail. Do you have a reason why another way would
be better, or are you trying to hinder MPlayer development only because
an obsolete compiler cannot compile the best way to write the code?
