I had a look into the SVN repo of the yasm port, here:
the last version change dates from Feb 2012; so this does not look as a
yasm regresion for me.
And if you look into the output produced by the yasm' preproc,
why yasm does know X86FXSTATE_size at line 733 in yasm.out:
X86FXSTATE_size EQU $ - X86FXSTATE
but not X86TSS16_size in line 765:
X86TSS16_size EQU $ - X86TSS16
i.e. from where it knows X86FXSTATE_size, but not X86TSS16_size?
