[PATCH] x86 inline-asm: error-out on a 64-bit variable bound to a single register in 32-bit mode

Can you investigate why we are warning in the first place? I think we
should either only warn or only error. Currently we have a warning with a
fixit but we don't recover as though we had applied the fixit. If we did
that, we would not crash.

In addition to the Clang-side changes, LLVM should probably be returning an
error or reporting a fatal error instead of hitting unreachable.
