Inline Assembler bug fixes

The inline assembler is a surprisingly compact piece of code for what it does,
but is overly complex. It's also not used that much, so it has tended to be
neglected, and bug reports have slowly accumulated for it. Some were 10 years old.
But, once one figures out how it works, might as well go through the bug list
for iasm and see what can be done about them.
I'm happy to report that it has been whittled down to 3:
https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12635 - the description is a little
vague and I can't determine what the issue actually is
https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=12878 - this one is a bit complicated
to fix, but fortunately isn't critical
https://issues.dlang.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15242 - an enhancement request, not a bug
My apologies to those who have been suffering waiting for these fixes.
