Yes. > So we would be doing some sort of static analysis and optimize that way? No. Please take a look at e.g. x86.S (note the uppercase "S", which means that cpp is enabled) to see how we use cpp macros when programming in assembly. I think we'll approach GCN ISA asm in a similar fashion. > This will only be useful when writing GCN ISA code by hand. Isn't this exactly what we're going to be doing? Alexander
