--- Comment #2 from Alan Modra <amodra at gmail dot com> ---
Those nops are emitted by the linker, not the assembler.  We currently have no
generic infrastructure for emitting fancy nop sequences in linker generated
padding, but see emultempl/ppc32elf.em:no_zero_padding.

However, I question whether emitting multi-byte nops in padding on x86 is a
good idea.  If you somehow execute those nops, what happens when you jump into
the middle of a multi-byte nop?
