armv5te: make 'ret lr' produce iinterworking 'bx lr'
Current ARM assembler helper for the 'return to caller' pseudo-instruction turns 'ret lr' into 'mov pc, lr' for ARMv5TE. This causes the core to remain in its current ARM state even when the routine doing the 'ret' was called from Thumb-1 state, triggering an undefined instruction exception. This causes early run-time failures in all boards compiled using the Thumb-1 instruction set (for instance the Open-RD family). ARMv5TE supports 'bx lr' which properly implements interworking and thus correctly returns to Thumb-1 state from ARM state. This change makes 'ret lr' turn into 'bx lr' for ARMv5TE.
