Subject [jira] Commented: (HARMONY-4854) [drlvm][jit][opt] VMMagic Address prefetch support in JIT.

Dmitry Pronichkin commented on HARMONY-4854:
--------------------------------------------

Hi,

there is a mistake in the patch - you prefetch address as an integer number but not as a memory
area. You need to put Address into base of new memory operand and then prefetch resulting
operand.

Another comment: all kinds of prefetches behave similar on Core architecture. On other architectures
maybe it's better to make PREFETCHNTA.

Thanks,
Dmitry.
