[ARM] Is TARGET_UNIFIED_ASM still needed?

In the arm backend we've got this TARGET_UNIFIED_ASM macro that is
currently on for TARGET_THUMB2 with a comment that says:
/* We could use unified syntax for arm mode, but for now we just use it
for Thumb-2. */
I've been doing some work converting the pre-UAL floating point
mnemonics to unified syntax and it seems if we were to strictly adhere
to this TARGET_UNIFIED_ASM I would have to guard those changes, which
would be somewhat ugly.
Is it perhaps time to just drop this and assume unified asm everywhere?
