Re: Rep:Re: Re: [f-cpu] New suggestion about call convention

Well, if we want for F-CPU to be KISS, we need to consider loadm/storem
rather as a macro than as a real instruction indeed.

storem r16,[sp],r31 will be rewritten as :

    store [sp]+,r16
    store [sp]+,r17
    store [sp],r31
(note:  i choose here the third register field as source register for
'store' to be consistant with 'load')

and loadm r16,[sp],r31 :

    load [sp]-,r31
    load [sp]-,r30
    load [sp],r16

Just a problem : whygee stated that there would not be any pre-decrement
addresses, so I was forced to use a post-decrement - especially without
modifying the address register of the last store/load. But just after a
"store [sp],r31" for example, if we call a sub-function with other stores,
we will crash the saved value of r31. So my question is : what must I do to
change the address register without discarding its pointer status ? (you
know, Whygee, you told me if I do "add 8,sp,sp", sp would no longer be
considered as a pointer).

    store [sp],r31
    store [sp]+,r31
    load [sp]-,r31
    load [sp]-,r0
    load [sp]-,r31
is annoying if we still need to wait for reading [sp].
