That the reason why I have to use:
imm = (int64_t)im16 & 0x000000000000ffffLL;
But I don't know why both objdump and tcg_gen_ori_i64 treate imm16 as
signed integer. I guess:
- For tcg_gen_ori_i64, I don't know why, does it need improvement?
- For objdump, for me, the main reason is that the opcode only has
TILEGX_OP_TYPE_IMMEDIATE which is only for signed immediate number,
no one for unsigned immediate number (the same in Linux kernel).
If I have to use unsigned immediate number, I guess, at least, we also
need fix the related issue in both binutils and Linux kernel (if
possible, I should do it, within next month).
