Subject: [Qemu-devel] [PATCH, RFC] Disable implicit self-modifying code support for RISC CPUs
Date: Sat, 3 Nov 2007 22:15:52 +0200


RISC CPUs don't support self-modifying code unless the affected area
is flushed explicitly. This patch disables the extra effort for SMC.
The changes in this version would affect all CPUs except x86, but I'd
like to see if there are problems with some target, so that the
committed change can be limited. Without comments, I'll just disable
SMC for Sparc, as there are no problems. So please comment, especially
if you want to "opt in".

For some reason, I can't disable all TB/TLB flushing, for example
there was already one line with TARGET_HAS_SMC || 1, but removing the
|| 1 part causes crashing. Does anyone know why?
