Re: [PATCH], Patch #2 of 10, Add RTL prefixed attribute

Hi Mike,

Some comments on this patch:

Both the "update" and the "indexed" attributes have no problem with
this: the insns that have the problem set the attribute value directly.
This is mainly all the various update insns, but there are a bunch more,
and they all need different settings for their attributes.

Don't say "return;" at the end of a function please.

You don't need to clear the flag here; the next call to
rs6000_final_prescan_insn will.

Either have the function only do what it needs to for prefixed, and call
it something with prefixed in the name, or put the TARGET_PREFIXED_ADDR
test in the function itself.

(use P for addresses please)

pld does an indirection more than pla does, but this is not clear at all
from the RTL, from the predicate names.  All this is *before* the linker
has done its thing, so pcrel_external_address is really some GOT memory,
so it should have that in its name.
