Re: More troubles in ColdFire land

The expander can be modified to reject (set (mem (plus (reg, reg))) const_int).
I'm assuming you mean to modify the instruction pattern constraints to
not allow that combination.

I didn't add a constraint letter for reg+reg.  I instead modified
fix(respectively) reg+reg if the mode was float and it was a v4e.
Also I set up the patterns to have constraints of "f<Q>U" which are
all the modes that the v4e FPU supported.  I'm ignoring PC-relative
loads for the moment.  I *should* add a constraint letter for that.

Is this true?
