Effectively. To be more precise, it turns the assembly statement into a
compiler fence. "memory" tells the compiler to assume that the assembly code
accesses and modifies memory in unpredictable ways, and the effect of that
is basically a compiler fence.

You should probably use the __asm__ and __volatile__ spellings as a matter
of style though.
