[PATCH v7 17/26] x86/insn-eval: Handle 32-bit address encodings in virtual-8086 mode

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


It is possible to utilize 32-bit address encodings in virtual-8086 mode via
an address override instruction prefix. However, the range of address is
still limited to [0x-0xffff]. In such a case, return error.

Also, linear addresses in virtual-8086 mode are limited to 20 bits. Enforce
such limit by truncating the most significant bytes of the computed linear
