But what's your point?  Are you volunteering to modify GCC so that it
accepts more than 10 operands in ASM statements, and to find a way to
represent them in the ASM pattern?  Remember that there are only 10
digits in decimal, so you'd have a little bit of trouble to represent
the 11th operand in "%?".
