[Bug gas/5269] New: Cryptic Note-messages to translate in gas-2.17.90.fi

Here below are msgids that are a bit difficult to internationalize. The first
problem here is "gprs". It is actually GPRs or "General-Purpose RegisterS",
isn't it?

The next problem here is "Note". When I checked with my favorite online
dictionary, it provides 22 different meaning for "Note". Usually context shows
what is the meaning of a single word, if there are alternatives, but with these
short msgids you can't even be sure, if "note" is noun or verb. Actually, when I
checked with the present translations, it looks that our French and Spannish
translators have supposed that in this context word "note" is verb, something
like "Note that...".

Meaning number 16 of my online dictionary is "flag, switch", meaning number 19
is "tag, entry, item". With my desktop dictionary there is also "note of
exclamation" as an example. That would mean about the same as "character".

The following problem is number 32. PowerPC processors include 32
General-Purpose Registers, but why to tell it? And are there any processors that
have 64 General-Purpose Registers? But I noticed that the GPRs are either 32 or
64 bits wide. So, there are only 32 GPRs, but they can be either 32 bit or 64
bit wide? 

PLS, can you rewrite these msgids so that translators know how to translate
