Thank's a lot!

I'll add the below text to the commit message, and apply it internally

[ breaking compatibility with older clang compilers
 is intended to finally make use of a feature which allows the
 compiler to allocate even/odd register pairs. This is possible since
 a very long time with gcc, but only since llvm-project commit
 d058262b1471 ("[SystemZ] Support i128 inline asm operands.") with
 clang. Using that feature allows to get rid of error prone register
 asm statements, of which the above named kernel commit is only the
 first of a larger not yet complete series]
