Ok. So your commit message and explanation was pure and utter tripe,
and the real reason you want this is that llvm-mc is broken.

Please fix llvm-mc instead, ok? If the intent of llvm is to be

the gas behavior is clearly superior, so why not just improve the llvm
toolchain to match those improved semantics?
