Yes, we still have some inline asm either because nobody has gotten
around to port it to NASM syntax after the project moved to it, or
because like with CABAC and some single instruction functions in
libavutil it makes sense being inline since the call overhead would kill

That document could use some polishing, but in any case, as stated in
the "Inline asm vs. external asm" section, we have for several years
required new code that calls external functions to be written in NASM
syntax, as it's the case with this patchset.
