Looking at it again, it was probably not the best example, in this case the
difference between clang and gcc is that clang happens to inline 
stv090x_write_regs while gcc doesn't inline it. If I mark that function as
__always_inline, gcc produces good code as well, but that is a little besides
the point. In a lot of other examples the function that gets called is from
another file, so we can't inline it. I can attach a few other examples if that
helps, or you could just replace the function with an extern declaration for
testing.
