I clicked on the url that you referenced with the assembly code, and that particular chunk is under this conditional compilation:
So the assembly code is suitable for power pc, but not intel architecture. Probably your build configuration isn't correct.
Hi Melanie and Kittur,
Thanks for the quick response! It might as well be the case that this particular chunk is being considered due to incorrect build configuration... I still didn't have the chance to try fixing it -- to be honest, what I'm trying to compile here is the Julia language REPL, so the build wasn't set up by me. This issue is being discussed on GitHub (https://github.com/JuliaLang/julia/issues/9145), I'll forward Melanie's suggestion to them.
Thank you very much,
