Well, I'll have to look at the report again, but it seemed to me that the error
was from the C compiler, not the assembler, which IMO invalidates this explanation
and is the reason why I concluded the compiler stupidly does "g" + 64 bit pointer = error

Huh? If dither is given and address > 32 bit the address of "end" obviously
isn't a 32 bit constant, so where is the issue supposed to be?
