Re: [Patch : H8300] Fix regressions for bit related instructions

Hi Jeff,

Please find attached the "h8sx.patch" patch which fixes regressions 
for H8SX and related targets. 
The patch basically disallows use of register operands in bit patterns
for H8SX target. H8SX code results in ICE when trying to generate 
SUBREG(gen_rtx_SUBREG) for bit patterns. Hence, bit patterns of H8SX
was restricted to use only memory mode. As H8SX target is a higher 
version of H8300, it generates memory addressing RTL pattern for bit 
patterns. Hence this approach would optimize the code in H8SX as it 
reduces the overhead of loading registers before operating on bit 

We had already posted the initial patch at following link:-
However, we could not follow up on the patch due to some other 
priorities. Please let us know whether it is the correct approach to 
solve the ICE generated with H8SX target or let us where to modify the
code to fix these errors.

Thanks a lot for verifying the patch and useful comments. The comments
will be addressed and the patch will be posted PR 41998 as per your
