this change is huge and not easy to review:)
So far I only found one mis-aligned comment in vm_version_ppc.cpp:
+ a->vand(VR0, VR0, VR0); // code -> vand
+ a->lqarx_unchecked(R7, R3_ARG1, R4_ARG2, 1); // code -> lqarx_m
+ a->vcipher(VR0, VR1, VR2); // code -> vcipher
Besides that, the change looks good.
Thanks for taking the effort to do this change!
