No problem.  Thanks for the explanation.
BTW please don't forget to add documentation of the builtins.
Being a non-PPC person, I had to dig and hack in the backend to get the
HTM builtins to work for the test.  I think the binutils version that I

"-mhtm" option it would complain about that I need to specify the
"-mhtm" option to use the builtins...
