In case it is not obvious from what other people have said, way back
in the days of ghc-6.2, you got -fvia-C by default, whether it was
specified on the command-line or not. To override via-C, you needed
to explicitly choose the opposite (-fasm). With more recent versions
of the compiler, the default flipped over to -fasm.
