If it doesn't exist already, someone should really add bits to
binutils so you guys don't have to string paste like this.

For example a bit a mnenomics that the assembler internally changes
into the 64-bit or 32-bit variant based upon what bitness it is
targetting.

We have these on sparc, for example "ldn" is transformed into "lduw"
for 32-bit and "ldx" for 64-bit.
