wouldn't you need to tie all these to (unused) outputs as well as adding
the remaining caller-saved registers to the clobber list? Maybe not for
the WARN machinery(?), but at least for stuff that should look like a
normal call to gcc? Then there's %rax which is either a clobber or an
output, and if there's not to be a separate static_call_void(), one
would need to do some __builtin_choose_expr(__same_type(void, f(...)), ...).
