[v2 1/7] x86/mpx: Do not use SIB index if index points to R/ESP

[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 is used
(i.e., mod part of ModR/M is not 3), a SIB byte is used and the index of
the SIB byte points to the R/ESP (i.e.,index = 4), the index should not be
used in the computation of the memory address.

An example of such instruction could be

    insn -0x80(%rsp)

This is represented as:

     [opcode] 4c 24 80

      ModR/M: mod: 1, reg: 1: r/m: 4 (R/ESP)
      SIB 24: sc: 0, index: 100 (R/ESP), base(R/ESP): 100
      Displacement -0x80

The correct address is (base) + displacement; no index is used.

Care is taken to allow R12 to be used as index, which is a valid scenario.
