AArch32/Armv8A introduced the performance deprecation of certain patterns
of IT instructions. After some debate internal to ARM, this is now being
reverted; i.e. no IT instruction patterns are performance deprecated
anymore, as the perfomance degredation is not significant enough.
This reverts the following:
"ARMv8-A deprecates some uses of the T32 IT instruction. All uses of
IT that apply to instructions other than a single subsequent 16-bit
instruction from a restricted set are deprecated, as are explicit
references to the PC within that single 16-bit instruction. This permits
the non-deprecated forms of IT and subsequent instructions to be treated
as a single 32-bit conditional instruction."
The deprecation no longer applies, but the behaviour may be controlled
by the -arm-restrict-it and -arm-no-restrict-it command-line options,
with the latter being the default. No warnings about complex IT blocks
will be generated.
