You did not include the options you passed to gas to assemble the
asm file or the objdump options you used to disassemble them.
My guess is you didn't assemble the file with the correct gas
options, since wait is correctly assembled for me:
[bergner@igoo idle_e500]$ cat wait.s
[bergner@igoo idle_e500]$ ../build/binutils-e500/gas/as-new -a32 -me500mc -o wait.o wait.s
[bergner@igoo idle_e500]$ ../build/binutils-e500/binutils/objdump -d -Me500mc wait.o
wait.o: file format elf32-powerpc
Disassembly of section .text:
0: 7c 00 00 7c wait
Maybe you aren't passing any -m<CPU> option to gas? If you don't,
you're going to get an implicit -m<CPU> option that defaults to the
latest server cpu, which isn't what you want.
