Hi Shankar,

Thanks for the answer. Ideally, there should be no difference between
Mips integrated assembler and llvm-mc. In fact, as far as I know, the
small difference exists. Some pragmas are implemented in the
integrated assembler and are not implemented in llvm-mc. Fortunately
that does not affect lld testing.
