I'm just annoyed a bit only because I work pretty consistently to give
you full feedback when you ask for testing within 24 hours. And this
includes weekends and holidays.
Why it is such a big deal to simply wait until you get the feedback,
what's the rush? :-)

Oracle specifies a lot of impractical deprecations of existing
mnenomics in the UA2011 manual. For example, they also want to phase
out "ldd" for integer registers and start to call it "ldtwa". I wish
them a lot of luck with that.
Besides, the manual can say whatever it wants, it's what the assembler
accepts that matters, right? :-)
BTW, I added support for all of the VIS3 instructions to binutils in
2011, so build testing ought to not be that hard even on pre-T3
