[AArch64] Add command-line option for SB

Authored by dnsampaio on Dec 20 2018, 5:02 AM.



SB (Speculative Barrier) is only mandatory from 8.5
onwards but is optional from Armv8.0-A. This patch adds a command
line option to enable SB, as it was previously only possible to
enable by selecting -march=armv8.5-a.

This patch also removes the FeatureSB from the previous FeatureSpecRestrict.

Similar patch upstream in GNU binutils:;a=commit;h=68dfbb92ef5f013a315d652c88ede2082c16a88e

I don't think this is needed. You've moved the SB instruction from FeatureSpecCtrl to this new feature, but the SB instruction was the only thing in FeatureSpecCtrl, which is now empty.

That is indeed true, I've confused it with SpecRestrict that holds Systems operands.
