Attached is a patch for supporting this feature (crx.patch.bz2).
I ran GAS testsuite on the change - 2 of the 3 unexpected failures now 
pass.
The third (do_930509a on all/gas.exp) should be disabled as for PA 
architecture (handled by the linker).

The patch also includes support for two new CRX instructions (popx, 
pushx).
Please apply the changes, if approved.
