Then you'd run it with

  make exploded-test TEST="gtest:AssemblerAArch64"

The downside is that it won't run on every startup of a debug build, but
it will run in the tier1 tests, including for release builds, which
arguably gives more coverage. It looks a lot tidier to me, but that's
clearly subjective.
