Possibly a stupid question, but I couldn't find any information in the
(afaik) only released Montecito documentation (the Optimization guide).
Has the br.ia completer been removed from the architecture? Or will
it generate a trap which can be caught and the translator invoked?
The doc only references added insns, not those removed from the arch.
