I forgot to comment on this .set noreorder thing. GCC expects gas to be
in reorder mode at the end of every bit of inline assembler, so above
code is at the mercy of GCC.

Not sure what the intent was here, was it to avoid GCC from reordering
the outl() calls? These are already marked volatlile and should not be
reordered by GCC. .set (no)reorder on the other hand is a directive
to GAS and GCC won't be influenced at all by it.
