In ThumbThunk::isCompatibleWith, we check if we can use short thunks if we are
within branch range. However these short thumb thunks will generate b.w
instructions, and these are not available on pre branch range extension
On these architectures (v4, v5, and most of v6), we could replace the b.w with a
Thumb b (2) instruction, but that would in an ideal situation only give us an
extra range of 2048 bytes on top of the 4MB range of a BL, if a thunk section
happens to be placed on the outer range of a BL and the stars are aligned. It
doesn't seem worth it.
What would be worth it is a state change to Arm and a subsequent branch to
either Arm or Thumb code. But that's the subject of another patch.
