Actually, it doesn't look as though there's any way to even ask gcc to 
do this.  According to


it's possible to use the "=R" constraint to specify any general-purpose 
register (including bp), but there's no way to explicitly specify bp itself.

I'll wait for compile farm access and then try out some options.
