- Subject: [PATCH], Fix V1TI in Altivec regs on old systems
This is a little corner case that I noticed in my rewrite of the RELOAD_REG
stuff for the future machine.
I was testing what registers were allowed in what registers for various systems
(power5 through power9 for big endian on both 32 & 64-bit systems, and
power8/power9 for little endian systems). I was using the debug flag
-mdebug=reg which dumps out the reg_addr information (among other things). I
noticed on power5 that the V1TImode mode is allowed in Altivec registers, even
though power5 doesn't have Altivec registers.
While it doesn't seem to effect anything (I couldn't create a test case that
failed), it is a small nit that should be fixed. The test for TARGET_VADDUQM
matches a test earlier in the function where VSX registers are checked.
I have done a bootstrap on a little endian power8 and there were no regressions
in the bootstrap or make check. I also verified via -mdebug=reg that V1TI mode
is marked as being valid in the Altivec registers with -mcpu=power5. Can I
check this into the trunk?
