Again, I ask what the plans are for asm-cc-output, hard depending on
that is a few years out I imagine, but if you don't promise feature
parity for all the features we use, I can see this all happening again.

Also, it would be good to get input on the whole memory model situation;
esp. with people looking to do LTO builds, the C/C++ memory model can
cause us quite some grief, for specifics I feel we should start a new
thread. But this is another issue that's been raised several times
without feedback.
