-mae=ANY selects a completely generic AE type. Code generated with this option will run on any of the other AE types. The code will not be as efficient as it would be if compiled for a specific AE type, and some types of operation (e.g., multiplication) will not work properly on all types of AE.
-mae=MUL selects a MUL AE type. This is the most useful AE type for compiled code, and is the default.
-mae=MAC selects a DSP-style MAC AE. Code compiled with this
option may suffer from poor performance of byte (char) manipulation,
since the DSP AE does not provide hardware support for byte load/stores.
