Use "+r" in the asm instead of implementing a non-transparent copy by
applying "0" constraint to the source value. Introduce a typedef for
the function type to avoid spelling it out twice.

I didn't get credited in the asm bugfix, but I still want to leave my mark ;)

Thanks.
Alexander

This looks better, especially the aspect of using the typedef'd
function type for DRY (assignment to an explicitly declared function
pointer with the right argument type would also achieve that, but
would involve repetition). If nobody objects I'll apply this very
soon, once I get through with some unrelated queued changes.
