[PATCH PR62011]

Hi All,

Here is a fix for PR 62011 - remove false dependency for unary
bit-manipulation instructions for latest BigCore chips (Sandybridge
and Haswell) by outputting in assembly file zeroing destination
register before bmi instruction. I checked that performance restored
for popcnt, lzcnt and tzcnt instructions.

Bootstrap and regression testing did not show any new failures.

Is it OK for trunk?
