The last release of yasm was in 2013, and in most cases, we _also_ require nasm on platforms where we require yasm. At the same time, we pass flags to yasm that make it take nasm syntax as input, so practically speaking, nasm can be used to replace yasm in a fairly straightforward manner. So instead of relying on two different assemblers, one of which is abandoned, rely on just one.

(This is also not a case of yasm being "finished" rather than abandoned. There are new instruction sets that yasm doesn't support but nasm does)
