asm in gcc

I am a new bie to asm. And today I encounter a problem, but I don't know why? I use embedded asm in gcc on IA64.
The following code can work well.
asm("mov r12=%0;;"::"r"(esp-16)); //putting esp-16 to r12
but this code cannot work, when compiling it reports that
"output operand constraint lacks '=' "
asm("mov %0=r12;;":"r"(esp);//getting esp from r12
I searched this error on google, but the two results didn't bring me much hints.
And on x86_64, the situation is alomst the same, though the asm codes maybe a little different.
asm("\tmov %0, %%rsp\n" :: "r"(rsp)); //compling good
asm("\tmov %%rsp, %0\n" :"r"(rsp); //compling error
Could you please give me some suggestion?
