[X86] Disable the NOP padding for branches when bundle is enabled

Authored by skan on Feb 28 2020, 5:32 AM.



When bundle is enabled, data fragment itself has a space to emit NOP to bundle-align instructions. The behaviour makes it impossible for us to determine whether the macro fusion really happen when emitting instructions. In addition, boundary-align fragment is also used to emit NOPs to align instructions, currently using them together sometimes makes code crazy.

(Still worth considering removing the bundle_align feature entirely, but in the meantime, definitely good to not blow up).

(+1 considering removal of .bundle_align_mode)
