The problem

Starting from g++-9 (and for g++-8.3.0) GCC will reject the asm volatile toplevel constructs:

asm volatile("some thing"); error: expected ‘(’ before ‘volatile’
 asm volatile("some thing ");

The fix

The fix is simple: just drop volatile. There is no defined symbol ordering in object file anyway:

asm ("some thing ");
