Re: [PATCH] fix arm neon ICE by widening tree_type's precision field
I suppose that's doable but:
- Doesn't that make base bigger (i.e. it affects everything, whereas
the proposed patch is neutral wrt space)?
No, there are spare bits in base.
- I personally don't know which bits could be safely moved.
Any? What I mean is, instead of moving packed_flag from type to
type.common.base.packed_flag, you move lang_flag_6 from type to
type.common.base.lang_flag_7. Instead of having 7 language fields in
base and 7 in type, you have 8 and 6 respectively.
Actually, what about moving all 7 language specific fields to base? ;-)
We have 23 spare bits in base and 0 in type, that would even the field
Unless I'm missing something of course.
