[PATCH v7 04/26] x86/mpx: Do not use SIB.index if its value is 100b and ModRM.mod is not 11b

[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 ModRM.mod !=11b and
ModRM.rm = 100b indexed register-indirect addressing is used. In other
words, a SIB byte follows the ModRM byte. In the specific case of
SIB.index = 100b, the scale*index portion of the computation of the
effective address is null. To signal callers of this particular situation,
get_reg_offset() can return -EDOM (-EINVAL continues to indicate that an
error when decoding the SIB byte).

An example of this situation can be the following instruction:

   8b 4c 23 80       mov -0x80(%rbx,%riz,1),%rcx
   ModRM:            0x4c [mod:1b][reg:1b][rm:100b]
   SIB:              0x23 [scale:0b][index:100b][base:11b]
   Displacement:     0x80  (1-byte, as per ModRM.mod = 1b)

The %riz 'register' indicates a null index.

In long mode, a REX prefix may be used. When a REX prefix is present,
REX.X adds a fourth bit to the register selection of SIB.index. This gives
the ability to refer to all the 16 general purpose registers. When REX.X is
1b and SIB.index is 100b, the index is indicated in %r12. In our example,
this would look like:

   42 8b 4c 23 80    mov -0x80(%rbx,%r12,1),%rcx
   REX:              0x42 [W:0b][R:0b][X:1b][B:0b]
   ModRM:            0x4c [mod:1b][reg:1b][rm:100b]
   SIB:              0x23 [scale:0b][.X: 1b, index:100b][.B:0b, base:11b]
   Displacement:     0x80  (1-byte, as per ModRM.mod = 1b)
