What is this `data' qualifier supposed to do?
nasmdoc6.html#section-6.5.1 doesn't list a `data' qualifier.
nasmdoc6.html#section-6.5.3 is the relevant lookup on data in nasm's
index, and it's only an extension to global.  If that's the one, then
indeed it's not supported.  (And it also stretches beyond my current
understanding of ELF object files.)

Perhaps you could give me at least the line of code or a link to the
file (http://www.xvid.org/cvs/chora/co.php/xvidcore/src/image/x86_asm/colorspace_yuyv_mmx.asm?r=1.2 doesn't seem to have the relevant line), and if the
performance doesn't match something in nasm's manual, a description of
what you believe should happen.
