Right.  The .s file has $-1 for that operand and the instruction stream
generated has 8f ff ff ff ff 00 00 00 00, which is immediate mode with
a value of 00000000ffffffff.

In my eyes that definitely looks like a gas bug. Why would gas generate 8f ff ff ff ff 00 00 00 00 for the immediate value -1 for a quad? That is not -1. That's a zero-extended 32-bit -1 into a 64-bit value. Do gas regard the immediate value as unsigned?
