Hmm, but if we get (not (const_int 0)) then that sounds like a bug,
since (and (not X) (not (const_int 0))) should reduce to (not X).
IMO target-independent code shouldn't try to create the nor-with-0
form and backends shouldn't match it.

Why would removing 'M' affect the printing mechanism?  Naively I'd
have expected:

(define_insn "*norsi3"
  [(set (match_operand:SI 0 "register_operand"                  "=r")
        (and:SI (not:SI (match_operand:SI 1 "register_operand"  "r"))
                (not:SI (match_operand:SI 2 "register_operand"  "r"))))]
  "nor\\t%0, %1, %2"
  [(set_attr "type" "alu")])

to just work.

But rtl-wise, we should never generate an EQ or NE with two constants.
And if one operand is constant then it's supposed to be the second.

The "%" should give commutativity on its own, without the "M".

There shouldn't be anything to be afraid of though.  Target-independent
code would use emit_move_insn for this though, so it needs to just work.

FWIW, I think it was more that comments should be above the field rather
than tagged on the right.  (One of the big problems with right-column comments
is that people tend to make them too short.)
