I'd be fine with enabling the switch on those platforms as well,
if we could get feedback from someone testing the behavior of gcc
on an AMD platform running Ubuntu 10.4.

If the problem is really only with the code snippet listed in the
bug report, there shouldn't be a problem and we can go ahead with
enabling computed gotos on that platform/compiler combination as well.
