gcc-4.1.3 of kubuntu has problem with proper syscall register
initialization in rt_task_shadow if TLS is enabled. But it is likely
that more compiler versions below 4.3 and more configuration variants
are affected.

This patch installs a workaround for these gcc versions which places an
optimization barrier before the register variable setup. This forces gcc
to actually load the registers.
