Re: Supporting more than one CPU with the same gas port.
Nick, would you say that it is in bad taste to try to make one
assembler handle two different sets of opcodes in one table, two
different sets of registers in one struct, etc? I would.
Bad taste - no. A magnet for bugs - yes.
Mind you, I suspect that this sort of thing (a computing device with
more than one type of CPU sharing the memory and other resources) might
become more prevalent in the future. If it does, then the binutils will
need to adapt to be able to handle generating executables for such devices.
