I meant having an output in the clobber list,

There's no output in the clobber list, just "memory" and "cc".  The
paravirt_clobber() is the stuff which gets put in the .parainstructions
section which tells the patcher what registers are expected to be
modified at that callsite (including both temp and output registers).

Ah, ok. I didn't think gcc had grown the appropriate antlers yet to allow outputs in the clobber list. But the paravirt-clobbers, yes that makes sense.
