Linux 2.4.4-ac3, asm problem in asm-i386/rwsem.h using gcc 3.0 CVS

Hi folks,

I currently fail to compile the 2.4.4-ac3 kernel using latest GCC 3.0 from CVS:
gcc -D__KERNEL__ -I/usr/src/linux/include -Wall -Wstrict-prototypes
 -O2 -fomit-frame-pointer -fno-strict-aliasing -pipe
 -mpreferred-stack-boundary=2 -march=i686    -DEXPORT_SYMTAB -c sys.c
sys.c: In function `sys_gethostname':
 inconsistent operand constraints in an `asm'

Here is the code exerpt:
 * unlock after reading
static inline void __up_read(struct rw_semaphore *sem)
        __s32 tmp = -RWSEM_ACTIVE_READ_BIAS;
        __asm__ __volatile__(
                "# beginning __up_read\n\t"
LOCK_PREFIX     "  xadd      %%edx,(%%eax)\n\t" /* subtracts 1, returns the old value */
                "  js        2f\n\t" /* jump if the lock is being waited upon */
                ".section .text.lock,\"ax\"\n"
                "  decw      %%dx\n\t" /* do nothing if still outstanding active readers */
                "  jnz       1b\n\t"
                "  pushl     %%ecx\n\t"
                "  call      rwsem_wake\n\t"
                "  popl      %%ecx\n\t"
                "  jmp       1b\n"
                "# ending __up_read\n"
                : "+m"(sem->count), "+d"(tmp)
                : "a"(sem)
                : "memory", "cc");

I'm afraid I know zilch about asm constraints...
Can anybody spot the trouble (and fix it :) ?
