Re: [Bug inline-asm/6162] [3.3 regression] i386 asm reloader ice in reload_cse_simplify_operands

Here is the patch for PR inline-asm/6162 in the 3.3 branch.

This is different from the version in mainline (and 3.4) in that I
have omitted the lines
	      else if (!this_insn_is_asm)
		abort ();
Those lines ensure that no code in gcc tries to use multiple pairs of
commutative operands.  That is a good sanity check for mainline, but I
don't think it serves a useful purpose in the 3.3 branch, and it would
introduce the possibility of an unexpected regression on some obscure

OK to check into the 3.3 branch?
