Re: Problem in split_basic_block


    But if you don't use addp4, you wind up with extra sext insns all
    the time.  Unlike Alpha, there's no add instruction that sign (or
    zero) extends from 32-bits.

Interesting.  I don't know the ia64 instruction set, but I'd always
thought of the addp4 stuff as a horrible kludge.  I'm kind of curious
about this myself now.

Anybody from HP know?
