So you want ev56 scheduling with pca56 instruction support to get this to
assemble?  IIRC, the scheduling code between the two processors doesn't
differ...only it's instruction support.  '-mcpu=pca56 -mno-bwx' may
allow it to compile and assemble while disabling generation of code to use
the BWX instruction sets (which aren't present on ev56, but are on pca56).
