*groan*... I was going to use it in more places :-/

That's all well and cute, but I can't use that because its too new. Not
until we raise the minimum gcc/bintils version to something that
includes that.

Sure, but I was hoping to move away from that since all assemblers
should now support jmp.d32. Except of course, you have to go ruin
things.

The thing is, jmp.d32 reads so much nicer than the above crap.

Also, I still need a meta instruction like:

nopjmp $label

what works just like 'jmp' but instead emits either a nop2 or a nop5.
I tried various hacks to get GAS to emit that, but no luck :/

The only up-side from that new syntax is that I suppose we can go write:

{disp8} push \vec

without gas shitting itself and emitting a 5 byte push just because..
Except of course we can't, for the same reason I can't go around and
use:

{disp32} jmp

in the above code.
