[PATCH v4 09/17] x86/insn-eval: Do not use R/EBP as base if mod in ModRM is zero

[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 the mod part of the ModRM
byte is zero and R/EBP is specified in the R/M part of such bit, the value
of the aforementioned register should not be used in the address
computation. Instead, a 32-bit displacement is expected. The instruction
decoder takes care of setting the displacement to the expected value.
Returning -EDOM signals callers that they should ignore the value of such
register when computing the address encoded in the instruction operands.

Also, callers should exercise care to correctly interpret this particular
case. In IA-32e 64-bit mode, the address is given by the displacement plus
the value of the RIP. In IA-32e compatibility mode, the value of EIP is
ignored. This correction is done for our insn_get_addr_ref.
