One quick question.
Is it not possible to merge:
+Target RejectNegative Report Mask(NO_SCHED_PRO)
+Do not move instructions into a function's prologue
+Target RejectNegative InverseMask(NO_SCHED_PRO) Undocumented
into a single flag:
TARGET Report InverseMask(NO_SCHED_PRO)
Permit scheduling of a function's prologue sequence
