[PATCH] doc - document how gcc relies on the length of an asm


This is a documentation update in response to PR 11442 where the user had 
put a .skip directive in an ASM statement and this broke GCC's asm size 
estimation rules.  It tries to make it clear that this is a user error 
that will only be detected by the assembler.

Comments?  If I don't hear any objections I'll commit this in a few days.

R.
