  I have never used the media intrinsics. On the other hand, studio 12 now 
  understands the inline assembly syntax of gcc. Or actually only most of it 
  (I believe it does not understand the commutative '%' for instance). So if 
  you have a support contract with Sun, your best bet is probably to ask 
  them to make the compiler understand the code written for gcc in gmp.
Why would one want to do that?  It will not be used by longlong.h,
since it is conditional on __GNUC__.

Of course, Sun can do an Intel and have their compiler define
__GNUC__, and cause complete confusion.  If they do, I will suggest to
the GCC Steering Committe that GCC define __SUNPRO_C to something
unhelpful.  :-)
