[v2 2/7] x86/mpx: Fail when implicit zero-displacement is used along with R/EBP

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Section of the Intel 64 and IA-32 Architectures Software
Developer's Manual volume 2A states that when memory addressing with no
explicit displacement (i.e, mod part of ModR/M is 0), a SIB byte is used
and the base of the SIB byte points to (R/EBP) (i.e., base = 5), an
explicit displacement of 0 must be used.

Make the address decoder to return -EINVAL in such a case.
