Referencing the instruction page would be enough, I thought (as
even I, not being an Arm person, have no difficulty locating it).
If it isn't, how is a canonical doc ref supposed to look like on
Arm? On x86, we avoid recording document versions, section
numbers, or even page numbers in code comments or commit messages
(which isn't to say we have none of these, but we try to avoid
new ones to appear), as these tend to change with every new
version of the doc. Therefore, to me, the offending commit's "ARM
DDI 0487D.b page G8-5993" doesn't look like something I wanted to
clone from. But if you tell me otherwise, then well - so be it.
