Thank you. Looks like general consensus is to have a warning. See attached 
patch that switches the error to a warning.

Subject: [PATCH] PR target/52813

Turns out there are existing programs that clobber stack pointer.
To avoid disruption, switch the newly introduced error to a warning.

Tested with:
  $ make check-gcc-c RUNTESTFLAGS="i386.exp=pr52813.c "

gcc/ChangeLog:

2018-12-16  Dimitar Dimitrov  <dimitar@dinux.eu>

	* cfgexpand.c (asm_clobber_reg_is_valid): Switch error to warning.
	Add clarification why there is a warning.

gcc/testsuite/ChangeLog:

2018-12-16  Dimitar Dimitrov  <dimitar@dinux.eu>

	* gcc.target/i386/pr52813.c (test1): Update warning message.
