Re: How to handle subreg(mem(X)) after reload?

Hi Jim,

Thanks for answering... I went ahead and replaced all my *movqi insns
with a single one which should accept everything:

(define_insn "*movqi"
	[(set (match_operand:QI 0 "nonimmediate_operand" "=r,w,W,W,W,m,W")
		  (match_operand:QI 1 "general_operand"         "W,W,r,i,w,W,m"))]
  "((!reload_in_progress && !reload_completed) || 
	  pic_is_w_reg(operands[0]) || pic_is_w_reg(operands[1]))"
  "* return pic_output_movqi (insn, operands);"
  [(set_attr "cc" "z")]

This is absolutely identical to the original *movqi_nomem, except that
I added m <- W and W <- m (W being the register that all moves must go
through), and I changed the code generator to a function in pic.c.

However, now gcc fails even earlier, not recognizing this insn, during

../../Desktop/gcc-3.4.3/gcc/libgcc2.c:468: error: unrecognizable insn:
(insn:HI 47 46 51 0 ../../Desktop/gcc-3.4.3/gcc/libgcc2.c:460 (set:QI
(mem:QI (reg:QI 51 FSR) [0 S1 A8])
        (reg:QI 72)) -1 (insn_list 45 (insn_list 46 (nil)))
    (expr_list:REG_DEAD (reg:QI 51 FSR)
        (expr_list:REG_EQUAL (const_int 0 [0x0])

So hang on... if my *movqi insn is pretty much the union of all my
previous *movqi's, why would this insn get rejected, or why would it
get accepted when all the *movqi's were present??

Changed port attached. Can you look at this one, compared to the
previous one, and explain why this insn isn't recognized? I'm getting
pretty confused as to when and in what order define_insn,
define_expand, and the various predicates and conditions are actually
