Using -xarch=v8plusc is wrong for UltraSPARC T1 and T2 processors, since they don't support VIS3 instructions set. This results in the following errors when using Sun assembler

hardware capability (CA_SUNW_HW_1) unsupported: 0x400

GNU assembler states that:

?-Av8plusc? and ?-Av9c? enable the UltraSPARC Niagara instructions, as well as the instructions enabled by ?-Av8plusb? and ?-Av9b?. 

However this is wrong, since with Sun/Oracle compilers this option is used for SPARC64 VI processor.
