Re: [PATCH, GAS/ARM] Fix selected_cpu with default CPU and -mcpu
I started to look into that but it seems that the only way to skip a test is
based on the target triplet which would be identical in both case. Would a
"require" mechanism makes sense where one could express that a test need a
feature FOO and the testsuite would call hasFOO to check whether the feature is
By the way, from what I could see many of the FAIL could be made to PASS even
with a default CPU but that's another story.

Wow! Maybe somebody at ARM (hint hint) would like to go through
these tests and add a missing -mcpu or -march option ?
No, they're supposed to test autodetection. Autodetection doesn't work
when there's a default CPU. You can't really fix the tests for that.
Would it be possible to create a proc that checks to see if autodetection
is working (or not needed because DEFAULT_CPU has been specified), and
skip the failing tests if it is not ?
