My first beam assembler hack

Found this in the online docs about the compiler:file/2 options...
||

||
|asm|
    The input file is expected to be assembler code (default file suffix
    ".S"). Note that the format of assembler files is not documented,
    and may change between releases - this option is primarily for
    internal debugging use.


I was not able to find the 'form_asm' option, but maybe I was looking in 
the wrong place or something.
