The comments with ix86_md_asm_clobbers suggest that dirflag is
always marked clobbered in order to preserve compatibility with
inline asms developed with earlier versions of GCC.

But regardless, if an inline asm in LLVM IR can list "dirflag"
as a clobber, codegen should be able to handle it correctly.

Also, it looks like "cc" should also get mapped to "flags".
