Actually, I've read it and it doesn't do that.  GCC is producing wrong code.

If you look at the slightly modified where it 
defines .LC999999=.LC2-5 and then each use of $LC2-5 is replaced by .LC999999 
generates an identical object as is generated by the write.c change.

As that is correct assembly, the problem must be someplace else.  Now this 
change may have that other problem to become visible but it is in no way 

So please do not back out the change.
