If you want to add xmm registers to the clobber list, it depends on  
compiler settings - without the parameter, it won't compile at all (at  
least as I tested on 32b system).

I'm sorry, but I don't know what is 387 support. But this code should, as  
far as I know, not crash.

But, after all, clobbering the registers seem like a better solution, so  
if you will help me with setting the flags in makefiles, it's not a
