Xiaoming Gu commented on HARMONY5901:

With the patch, nbody_long and spectralnorm_long in the benchmarks by Stefan
Krause couldn't pass. I'm investigating the bug.

> 1. Mulitiplication replacement
> a. It's about integer multiplication.
> b. One of two multipliers is a power of 2.
> c. The power of 2 could be negative.
> For example, 23*4 is transformed to 23<<2 and 23*(4) is transformed to (23<<2)*(1).
> 2. Division replacement
> a. It's about integer division.
> b. The divisor is a power of 2.
> c. The power of 2 could be negative.
> d. Because of roundup difference between division and shift right, the following
equations from Aleksey are used.
> Baseline: q = a / (1 << d);
> Optimized: q = (a + [(1 << d)  1] & (a >> 31)) >>
d;
> For example, 23/4 is transformed to (23+((1<<2)1)&(23>>31))>>2.
and (23)/(4) is transformed to ((23+((1<<2)1)&(23>>31))>>2)*(1).
> 3. Comments for SAR and SHR swapped
> The comments for the two similar operations were misplaced in working_vm/vm/port/src/encoder/ia32_em64t.
