The effectiveness of traditional optimizations on assembly code is
non-satisfactory w.r.t effort that will go into doing something useful.
I am not sure if you gain anything significant.
Good Instruction scheduling needs good alias analysis (thats a real
problem working with low level intermediate code as assembly). At
assembly level, hard registers will restrict instruction movement
severely as they introduce dependencies. Another issue you have to take
care is span dependent instructions. Plus all ideo-syncracies that a
hardware might have.

I think you need to figure out the cause why compiler couldn't emit
good code before assuming a optimizing assembler or a post-object
optimizer will be able to do the job.
Anyways, See this reference for useful tips on what can be done at
