Ok.  Checking out the old version I can reproduce this problem.

I would like to see Ron's case but YhLu I know what is causing the problem
for the old northbridge/e7501/raminit.c case.

The code is ignored but I am still attempting to convert the text
into C tokens.  Since C does nothing with a '$' character whenever
I hit one of those the tokenizer chokes.

While I am within my rights per the C standard it would be nice
to be more permissive when I am skipping code.

For unconverted assembly code I suggest enclosing it in multiple coments
or placing it in strings for the moment.
