In these cases, much of the code changes if the customization inside `computeFSAdditions()` is removed because we would no longer be using crbits pre-P8.

Up until Power8, the only instructions we had that require `crbits` were CR-logicals (which existed since the POWER architecture - i.e. before PowerPC). In Power8, we added BCD instructions that also require `crbits`. So that's why we turn it on for Power8 and up.
