| /var/tmp/ccesZfXi.s:852: Error: Value of 4294967296 too large for field of 4 bytes at 1724
The code in question is ...
I don't understand much about i386 processors, but I doubt that it
is really wanting to make a 4GB offset (plus a bit) from what's in
This has all the smells of some code that assumes integers will
overflow at 2^32, and knows that the overflow is irrelevant, and
wants it to be ignored (but didn't bother explicitly masking).
All of the errors were that kind of thing - different instructions,
but always "tags+big_number".
This is just in case this helps someone find & fix the problem.
