            Bug ID: 20359
           Summary: ARM MC assembler allows backward branching on CBNZ

Test case to demonstrate the issue

I have attached an arm assembly file which can demonstrate the issue.
(The test case is an excerpt from compiler-rt ARM builtins library)

$ clang  -mcpu=cortex-a9 -c /tmp/temp.s -no-integrated-as -o /tmp/temp.o
/tmp/temp.s: Assembler messages:
/tmp/temp.s:13: Error: branch out of range
clang-3.5: error: assembler command failed with exit code 1 (use -v to see

$ clang  -mcpu=cortex-a9 -c /tmp/temp.s -integrated-as -o /tmp/temp.o
The integrated-as compiles the file with out an issue and generates bad

$ arm-none-linux-gnueabi-objdump -S /tmp/temp.o
/tmp/temp.o:     file format elf32-littlearm
Disassembly of section .text:
00000000 <__sync_fetch_and_add_8>:
   0:    b570          push    {r4, r5, r6, lr}
   2:    f3bf 8f5f     dmb    sy
   6:    4684          mov    ip, r0
   8:    e8dc 017f     ldrexd    r0, r1, [ip]
   c:    1884          adds    r4, r0, r2
   e:    eb41 0503     adc.w    r5, r1, r3
  12:    e8cc 4576     strexd    r6, r4, r5, [ip]
  16:    bbbe          cbnz    r6, 88 <__sync_fetch_and_add_8+0x88>
  18:    f3bf 8f5f     dmb    sy
  1c:    bd70          pop    {r4, r5, r6, pc}

There is no address corresponding to 88 <__sync_fetch_and_add_8+0x88>.

The ARM manual on CBNZ says backward branching is not possible.
