If you really must, use something like this in the beginning of
parse_reg(), in gas/config/tc-sh.c:

  if (src[0] == '$' && src[1] != '$')
    {
      int ret = parse_reg (src+1, mode, reg);
      if (ret)
        {
          as_warn (_("$ is deprecated as a register prefix"));
          ++ret;
        }
      return ret;
    }
