Description of problem:
Not able to use "ar.csd" register in a program.
The compiler is giving the following error:
  unknown register name `ar.csd' in `asm'.

The program test program:

   unsigned long val;
   __asm__ __volatile__ ("mov ar.csd=%0;;"::"r"(val): \
                         "ar.csd", "memory");

cc -c chk.c # (chk.c contains the above program)
chk.c: In function `main':
      11: unknown register name `ar.csd' in `asm'

I am trying to use "cmp8xchg16" instruction where I need
to use ar.csd. I don't get any errors for ar.ccv register usage.

The gcc version is 3.2.3 20030502 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.3-20)
The vanilla installation kernel (2.4.21-4.EL) is running.
It is a "Itanium 2" box.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.See the description above for the sample test ...

Comment 1 Need Real Name 2004-05-05 10:49:34 EDT
The corresponding assembly code does recognize the ar.csd
register. So, the problem is not really are serious problem.
(Still, not sure why __asm__ with ar.csd complains)

Also, cmp8xchg16 is not implemented in itanium 2 anyway.
So, there is no need to use ar.csd......
