Right.  And meanwhile I found the problem, there is this code block in
the Sparc option parser of GAS that goes:

    case OPTION_XARCH:
#ifdef OBJ_ELF
      if (strncmp (arg, "v9", 2) != 0)
	md_parse_option (OPTION_32, NULL);
	md_parse_option (OPTION_64, NULL);
      /* Fall through.  */

And that's where the unexpected size override is happening.  That test
simply needs to be adjusted and I'll try to sort that out tonight.

Thanks for this, I was just starting to work on integrating our work
together and debugging the result.
