Bug Description

Syslinux FTBFS on yakkety amd64, i386 builds fine.
Previous version of syslinux (3:6.03+dfsg-11ubuntu1) now fails to build in the same way.
Downgrading nasm to 2.11.08-1 had no effect either.

arch/i386/interface/pcbios/int13.c: In function ‘register_int13_drive’:
arch/i386/interface/pcbios/int13.c:469:2: warning: asm operand 0 probably doesn’t match constraints
  __asm__ __volatile__ (
arch/i386/interface/pcbios/int13.c:469:2: error: impossible constraint in ‘asm’
