Description

Input register is clobbered in multi-statement asm resulting in incorrect re-load of the decrementer by clock ISR.

Note that the problem may or may not be triggered, depending on compiler strategies. Apparently, the 4.7 toolchain does trigger it but I don't consider the 4.6 compiler safe either. Needs to be fixed on both branches.

Release:
4.6, 4.7

Environment:
libcpu/powerpc/mpc6xx
