Good catch. And I know this bug has happened independently on
different architectures several times (I remember this on x86-64 as
well), so I started looking around.

And in fact, 4.9 was buggy on x86-64 too:

https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=61904

And yeah, _that_ gcc bug wasn't actually x86-64 specific, but
apparently a generic instruction scheduling bug.

So it's an independent bug, but I do have to admit that the arguments
against 4.9 are piling up (even if that particular fix apparently got
fixed in the gcc branches and apparently backported to distro
compilers too).
