Some versions of compiler don't have support for __int128_t for CASP inline-asm.
i.e. if the optimization level is reduced to -O0 the CASP restrictions aren't followed and 
compiler might end up violation the CASP rules example:

/tmp/ccSPMGzq.s:1648: Error: reg pair must start from even reg at operand 1 - `casp x21,x22,x0,x1,[x19]'
/tmp/ccSPMGzq.s:1706: Error: reg pair must start from even reg at operand 1 - `casp x13,x14,x0,x1,[x11]'
/tmp/ccSPMGzq.s:1745: Error: reg pair must start from even reg at operand 1 - `casp x9,x10,x0,x1,[x7]'
/tmp/ccSPMGzq.s:1775: Error: reg pair must start from even reg at operand 1 - `casp x7,x8,x0,x1,[x5]'*

Forcing to -O3 with __rte_noinline in place fixes it as the alignment fits in.

Pavan.
