Is it easy to support upper compatibility?  One time I had a problem that
rejected the plain H8/300's code in a library when I tried to use it on the
H8/300H, which was the reason for the diff between rev 1.3 and 1.4 for

Are you considering a scheme where you specify -ms if you are using *any*
H8/S, and you additionally specify -ms2600 if you want to enable the mac
stuff?  I was thinking of it as specifying one of -ms and -ms2600.  Actually
-ms sounds like any H8/S.  Should I just have an additional switch, -ms2600,
use it to turn on the predicate, TARGET_H8S2600, and in turn use the
predicate to enable the mac register and relevant instructions?  I hope this
idea is somewhat fair.
