This warning should be straight-forward to implement: just add an 'isused' bit on AsmLabelAttr and set it in AddVariableConstraits.

Rafael, could you tackle this if you get a chance?  Also, please add a doxygen comment to AddVariableConstraits and s/Constraits/Constraints/.

One other question, what valid code does this ErrorUnsupported reject?  Should it just be a normal error?

+  if (!Target.isValidGCCRegisterName(Register)) {
+    CGM.ErrorUnsupported(Variable, "__asm__");
+    return Constraint;
+  }
