Hello everybody!

I've seen the recently submitted alloca() code and wondered: Why not use tcc's inline asm?

- much simpler and probably slightly faster.
- bound checking is still probably broken (no __bound_delete_region called). I'd rather drop it completely for now.
- alloca(4096+) may have issues on PE target.

What do you think?
