Thanks for the detailed analysis.

My interpretation is that the %<findirect-dispatch for cc1 used to cancel the
effect of -findirect-dispatch for subsequent programs invoked by the driver, in
particular 'as' in this case.  Jakub's change disables this cancellation so
-findirect-dispatch is passed to 'as' and thus the kludge I put in ASM_SPEC for
Linux triggers, which breaks because cc1 hasn't compiled the file in PIC mode.
