GCC is *not* designating what is allowed and what is not allowed;
GCC does not know what is actually *available* in the assembler.

You may not remove this check without providing unaligned fp 
output macros.  Otherwise you don't know that the assembler won't
auto-align the data for you.

Thus my suggestion to remove all of the fp output macros in favor
of using the unaligned integer output macros.
