I haven't experimented, but I think the problem is more that after
Joerg's change, just giving "-mattr=+thumb2" to llc would leave it in
an inconsistent (or at least very odd) state. What's really desired in
most cases is "a v6T2 processor", so he just went and added it.
An alternative would have been "-mattr=+thumb2,+v6t2". I don't know
why he picked the one he did; perhaps even those two attributes aren't
a sensible choice alone.
