Why do you say that? It does have such a constraint:
# Only the low lg2(SEW) bits are read to obtain the shift amount from a
While that only talks about the register value, I sincerely doubt that the same
truncation does not actually apply to immediates.
And if the entire immediate value does apply, the manual should certainly
specify what should happen in that case. And at present it doesn't.
It seems to me the bug is the bare use of GEN_OPIVI_GVEC_TRANS and thence
do_opivi_gvec. The ZX parameter should be extended to more than just "zero vs
sign-extend", it should have an option for truncating the immediate to s->sew.
The latest spec specified:
Only the low lg2(SEW) bits
are read to obtain the shift amount from a register value
The immediate is treated as an unsigned shift amount, with a maximum shift amount of 31.
Looks like the shift amount in the immediate value is not relevant with SEW setting.
If so, is it better to just use do_opivi_gvec() and implement the logic by our own rather than using gvec IR?
