The option -mpad-max-prefix-size performs some checking and delegate to MC option -x86-pad-max-prefix-size. This option is designed for eliminate NOPs when we need to align something by adding redundant prefixes to instructions, e.g. it can be used along with -malign-branch, -malign-branch-boundary to prefix padding branch.
It has similar (but slightly different) effect as GAS's option -malign-branch-prefix-size, e.g. -mpad-max-prefix-size can also elminate NOPs emitted by align directive, so we use a different name here. I remove the option -malign-branch-prefix-size since is unimplemented and not needed. If we need to be compatible with GAS, we can make -malign-branch-prefix-size an alias for this option later.
