I am a bit ambivalent between getting folks to add scan-assembler
tests here and worrying between this and getting the behaviour
correct. Additionally if you add the complexity of scanning for
aarch64 as well this starts getting messy.

At this point I'm going to wait to see if any of the testsuite
maintainers step in and comment and if not I'll start looking at this
properly early next week.
