Ok. I wasn't aware that this is actually possible in order to mark operands
which regardless of the early clobber might match the input operand.
Nevertheless it is not clear to me why the & is needed on alternative 4 and 5
at all. If I understand it correctly the only remaining operand affected by the
early clobber would be operand 2 which is an immediate?!
