[dmd-internals] Inline assembler: Pause instruction

I don't really understand why the inline assembler doesn't support the
pause instruction.

I know it's just an alias and that rep nop will do the same thing, but
considering it's part of the Intel manual and most other assemblers
support it today, is there really a good reason to not support it for
consistency and compliance with the manual?
