Bug 14521: JavaScriptCore fails to build on Linux/PPC gcc 4.1.2

Attachment 17187: Possible patch

------- Additional Comments from Maciej Stachowiak <mjs at apple.com>
There's two possible kinds of problems that can be caused by getting the
assembly operand constraints wrong:

1) Inferior codegen, due to overconstraining the operands, and forcing gcc to
do needless moves.

2) Incorrect codegen, de to using an operand that is disallowed.

I think #2 will make the assembly stage fail, so if PPC compiles with this
patch it should be safe. For #1, we should be ok as well, because m is a looser
constraint than o, so you'd never have a needless copy to satisfy m when o is
