You actually don't need any operand modifiers in the insn template. Simply use:

"mov{<imodesuffix>}\t{%1@SIZE, %0|%0, %1@SIZE}"

and you will automatically get

"movl $zzz, %eax" or "mov %eax, OFFSET FLAT: zzz".

Since your pattern allows only symbolic_operand, there is no reload,
so you can avoid the constraint alltogether.

BTW: Did you consider various -mcmodel=... options? For DImode moves,
you should check x86_64_zext_immediate_operand predicate and output
either "movl $zzz, %eax" or "movabs $zzz, %rax". There is no movq with
64bit immediate. Please see movdi pattern.
