OK, thanks.

So the first pipe must have temporary variable.

Excuse me, I am not quite sure whether ld/st can be in pipe x0, y0, or

But I guess your meaning is that y2 must have temporary variable, or it
will cause issue.

Oh, really !! And I guess, Richard's code can not be sure of it: memory
write operand (e.g st) is not buffered. If what I guess is correct, for
me, it is not quite easy to fix this issue.

I also guess, at present, we need think of more before continue.
