Ok, will reword that part to something like:

As documented in GCC naked functions should only use Basic asm
syntax. The Extended asm or mixture of Basic asm and "C" code cannot
be depended upon.

Furthermore with clang using parameters in Extended asm in a
naked function is not supported:

Ok I see, so I definitely have to leave them in.

You generally agree with the change otherwise?
