No, I meant the particular piece of code in SDL_cpuinfo.c that executes the
CPUID instruction -- manually written code. The compiler will only
save/restore the registers that get clobbered and that *need* saving.

You should specify all the registers that you use in the input, output and
clobber lists at the end of your asm block to make sure gcc has all that
