SDIV/IDIV were originally introduced for R and M profile only
and there the Thumb encodings of SDIV/IDIV are mandatory
whereas the ARM ones are optional (and weren't initially
defined at all). So if you're looking for CPUs with only the
Thumb encodings I would try checking older R profile cores
like the Cortex-R4.
