You already have a workaround: different compiler flags for one file.
Why not file a bug report against gcc and wait a while to see if clarity
emerges? It may be a plain bug in gcc so the code can be left as is
and the flags changed until most people have the fixed version, or a
case where the optimizer sometimes makes bad choices and you are
better off changing the code to circumvent the issue.
