This patch simply isn't correct.  Take something like the following on x86:

int x,y;
void a() {
asm("add %0,%1" : "+r,m"(x) : "rm,r"(y));

With this patch, if I'm not mistaken, both operands will end up in
memory, which is illegal.

If you haven't seen them, docs are at
http://gcc.gnu.org/onlinedocs/gcc/Multi_002dAlternative.html .
