After refreshing my memory on how the sparc backend works, it turns  
out that this was a serious bug and that your patch is absolutely the

order the assembler was expecting, and we happened to get lucky that  
nothing downstream looked at the .td operand info.

Thanks Richard, I applied your patch here:
