Please beware that I really didn't understand it (or the gcc inline asm code
and how exactly it specifies registers, including how to stop input and output
values being in the same registers ) well enough to be sure that it was doing
exactly what I think it ought to be doing to get the multiply correct.

Merely that I found something that seemed to be in error.

Hopefully it now works, but there might be 1 in 2**32 (or 1 in 2**64)
cases where it still doesn't
