Aleksey Shipilev commented on HARMONY-5901:
-------------------------------------------

Good work, Xiaoming, but you need to clean up the patch a bit:
a. fold I4/I8 branches -  set the optype in switch and proceed to common code block
b. replace <TAB>s with 4 spaces

> replace integer multiplication or division with shift if one of multipliers or divisor
is a power of 2

> 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 round-up 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.
