Oops, I almost forgot to look at that. Adding that check to all other
cases sounds not like a good idea. Two questions/solutions:
1. Can normal loads and stores be indexed?
2. What about adding load and store assembler instruction like on x86
with an Address argument, e.g.
inline void lduw(Address a, Register d);
inline void lduw(const Address& a, Register d, int offset = 0);
seems to be doing something different, although I don't know yet what.
