I'm pretty sure this is wrong -- if I recall properly the 5200 can't actually
do byte sized moves into address registers.

You can probably look in the gcc list archives and find the discussion behind
this patch:

Sat Sep  5 03:23:05 1998  Jeffrey A Law  (

        * (5200 movqi): Do not allow byte sized memory references
        using address regs.
        * m68k.c (output_move_qimode): Do not use byte sized operations on
        address registers.
