Claiming that it's standard "because GCC does it that way" completely ignores all the other
compilers that do *not* do it that way.
I think you got it backward. I claim it's standard because Linux does it that way. Linux is what violates the prescribed standard.
I also didn't state the de facto standard as precisely as I could have, because Linux clearly should change to clear the DF flag. But Gcc should continue to clear it too, because old Linux exists.
