Update code to silent some ARM/ARM64 specific compiler warnings

Authored by omjavaid on Dec 8 2015, 3:20 PM.



Following changes remove conditions where an unsigned integer is being tested to be greater or equal to zero.

These conditions will always remain true and will result in compiler warning though most compilers will optimize this out.

We discussed the same change recently (D13866) and the general opinion was that the original code have the right semantics and we don't want to change it just to silence some warnings.

If you want to get rid of these warnings then I would suggest to do it with adding a cast before the comparison (I haven't tested it):

if ((int)reg_num >= x0 && (int)reg_num <= pc) // We are casting to int to silence a gcc warning

Let the warnings stay for now.
