c-aarch64.texi and c-arm.texi contain several occurrences of commandline

have settled on. This patch changes these occurences for better

         * doc/c-aarch64.texi: Replace uses of "commandline" by "command
         * doc/c-arm.texi: Likewise.

Committed as obvious.

If I remember my English grammar correctly, since the cases you change
here all use "command line" to qualify a noun ("option") I think they
should be hyphenated, so "command-line option".

I agree and my first attempt was changing it in this way but a grep for command.line shows that "command line" is used all over the place and command-line very seldomly. I went for consistency.

Best regards,
