IIUC any version of binutils with commit:

df7b4545b2b49572 ("[PATCH/AArch64] Generic support for all system registers using mrs and msr")

... should be sufficent.

That's on gitweb at:

https://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=binutils-gdb.git;a=commit;h=df7b4545b2b49572ab63690c130df973af109615

Is this the only blocker for the integrated assembler?

Thanks,
Mark.
