Completely?  No.  Many instructions on many processors only operate on
registers.  gcc has to decide which registers to use.

Partially?  Sure.  Compile without optimization.

Inline assembler in gcc is definitely a tricky issue.  There is one
way to definitely get what you want: write your timing-critical
routine in assembly code.
