Self printing program in assembly

Self printing programs, so called quines are funny, so I decided to write one in linux-x86 ASM just to make almost really self reproducing program (almost, as it relies upon syscall for output, but that's Unix), not relying upon any kind of runtime system provided by language. It's absolutely self-contained, and produces with usual gcc selfprint.s -nodefaultlibs -nostdlib -static -o sp && strip sp 416 bytes ELF file printing its own complete machine code.
macro SC num, a1, a2, a3
        movl  \\num, %eax
        movl  \\a1,  %ebx
        movl  \\a2,  %ecx
        movl  \\a3,  %edx
        int $0x80        
.endm

.globl _start
        .type   _start, @function
_start:
        call 1f
1:
        popl %esi
        subl $5, %esi
        xorl %edi, %edi
        subl $0x4, %esp
loop:   
        movzb (%esi,%edi),%eax
        andl $0xf, %eax
        movzb 0x63(%esi,%eax),%ebx        
        shll  $0x8, %ebx
        movzb (%esi,%edi),%eax
        shrl $0x4, %eax
        movzb 0x63(%esi,%eax),%ecx
        orl  %ecx, %ebx
        orl $0x00200000,%ebx
        movl %ebx, (%esp)
        SC  $0x4, $1, %esp, $4
        incl %edi
        cmpl $114, %edi
        jle loop
done:
        SC $0x1 $239 $0 $0
       .byte 0x30
        .byte 0x31
        .byte 0x32
