Re: [patch 4/9] Nios II port, gas support

OK, I've fixed this for the next version of the patch set to be posted, but.... I note that I matched the style of the surrounding documentation sections -- which do not follow that convention -- when I reviewed and copy-edited the Nios II documentation, and guidelines buried in the mail archives from 2+ years ago are not exactly obvious to new contributors.

It also does not seem like leaving it up to the individual target maintainers to update the assembler docs has been a successful policy. If I were to work on a (separate) patch to tidy up all the target option documentation, could that be handled strictly as a documentation patch without having to get explicit approval from all 40 bazillion target maintainers?
