For me, this change doesn't matter much as NetBSD has been using IAS for
a long time. I am speaking from the time it wasn't and it generally has
been a pain to hunt down all the necessary GAS flags to get it to accept
the output from Clang etc. Having to sprinkle a few -fno-ias flags has
been much less problematic.
