So when I came up with this originally the plan was to warn on
particularly fatal types of assembly mismatches with constraints
and/or modifiers. In the case of x86, for example, I'd want to see a
warning (I think) on:

uint32_t a;
asm("mov %0, %1" : "=r" (a) : "i" (0xffffffffff));

(yes, it's contrived) but basically if there are mismatches between
the size of the operand being stored/copied/etc and the size of the
destination. Truncation only since I'm not quite sure how I'd like to
handle widening. Probably too many false positives on the warnings
since people could easily be taking advantage of zero/sign extension
on some instructions.
