can't find a register in class 'GENERAL_REGS' while reloading 'asm'


in openssl-0.9.8e there is some inlined assembler code, which does not
compile with -fpic (or -fPIC) and -O0 on x86-linux-gnu.

$ gcc -c openssl-error.c
$ gcc -c openssl-error.c -fPIC
openssl-error.c: In function 'padlock_xcrypt_ecb':
openssl-error.c:28: error: can't find a register in class 'GENERAL_REGS' while reloading 'asm'
$ gcc -c openssl-error.c -fPIC -O1

It can be built without any -fpic/-fPIC, or with any optimization >= 1.

This sample is reduced from preprocessor-output of
openssl-0.9.8e/crypto/engine/eng_padlock.c on i686-pc-linux-gnu, and the
error is same for gcc-3.3.6, gcc-3.4.6, gcc-4.1.1 on i686-gentoo-linux,
as well as gcc-3.4.4 on i386 "Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4
(Nahant Update 2)".

Is this a bug in that assembler-code or in the compiler, or even both ?
