Actually, this is probably not a bug with gas at all.  It turns out that the
inline assembly code in the kernel was using movl to access the 16 bit fs and gs
registers.  The old gas was silently changing the movl to movw, whereas the new
gas was throwing an error.  I don't know what the intended behavior is, but
either way the code can be fixed in the kernel.

Summary: it seems to be a kernel issue, not a gas issue.
