Is there some reason we don't just fix the assembler?
This patch is a workaround for a Darwin assembler bug. It swaps the
order of two assembly lines in the case of empty EH symbols. OK to
commit to mainline?
Upgrade the assembler at the same time as you upgrade the compiler.
That assumes that upgraded assemblers are available, which isn't
actually the case. There's not even an assurance that the latest
Darwin assembler will even build and run on a Darwin system several
releases back (it might, but it's not a requirement).
