/// DisassemblerEmitter - Contains disassembler table emitters for various
/// architectures.

/// X86 Disassembler Emitter
/// *** IF YOU'RE HERE TO RESOLVE A "Primary decode conflict", LOOK DOWN NEAR
/// The X86 disassembler emitter is part of the X86 Disassembler, which is
/// documented in lib/Target/X86/X86Disassembler.h.
/// The emitter produces the tables that the disassembler uses to translate
/// instructions.  The emitter generates the following tables:
/// - One table (CONTEXTS_SYM) that contains a mapping of attribute masks to
///   instruction contexts.  Although for each attribute there are cases where
///   that attribute determines decoding, in the majority of cases decoding is
///   the same whether or not an attribute is present.  For example, a 64-bit
///   instruction with an OPSIZE prefix and an XS prefix decodes the same way in
///   all cases as a 64-bit instruction with only OPSIZE set.  (The XS prefix
///   may have effects on its execution, but does not change the instruction
///   returned.)  This allows considerable space savings in other tables.
///   THREEBYTEA6_SYM, and THREEBYTEA7_SYM contain the hierarchy that the
///   decoder traverses while decoding an instruction.  At the lowest level of
///   this hierarchy are instruction UIDs, 16-bit integers that can be used to
///   uniquely identify the instruction and correspond exactly to its position
///   in the list of CodeGenInstructions for the target.
/// - One table (INSTRUCTIONS_SYM) contains information about the operands of
///   each instruction and how to decode them.
/// During table generation, there may be conflicts between instructions that
/// occupy the same space in the decode tables.  These conflicts are resolved as
/// follows in setTableFields() (X86DisassemblerTables.cpp)
/// - If the current context is the native context for one of the instructions
///   (that is, the attributes specified for it in the LLVM tables specify
///   precisely the current context), then it has priority.
/// - If the current context isn't native for either of the instructions, then
///   the higher-priority context wins (that is, the one that is more specific).
///   That hierarchy is determined by outranks() (X86DisassemblerTables.cpp)
/// - If the current context is native for both instructions, then the table
///   emitter reports a conflict and dies.
/// *** RESOLUTION FOR "Primary decode conflict"S
/// If two instructions collide, typically the solution is (in order of
/// likelihood):
/// (1) to filter out one of the instructions by editing filter()
///     (X86RecognizableInstr.cpp).  This is the most common resolution, but
///     check the Intel manuals first to make sure that (2) and (3) are not the
///     problem.
/// (2) to fix the tables (X86.td and its subsidiaries) so the opcodes are
///     accurate.  Sometimes they are not.
/// (3) to fix the tables to reflect the actual context (for example, required
///     prefixes), and possibly to add a new context by editing
///     lib/Target/X86/X86DisassemblerDecoderCommon.h.  This is unlikely to be
///     the cause.
/// DisassemblerEmitter.cpp contains the implementation for the emitter,
///   which simply pulls out instructions from the CodeGenTarget and pushes them
///   into X86DisassemblerTables.
/// X86DisassemblerTables.h contains the interface for the instruction tables,
///   which manage and emit the structures discussed above.
/// X86DisassemblerTables.cpp contains the implementation for the instruction
///   tables.
/// X86ModRMFilters.h contains filters that can be used to determine which
///   ModR/M values are valid for a particular instruction.  These are used to
///   populate ModRMDecisions.
/// X86RecognizableInstr.h contains the interface for a single instruction,
///   which knows how to translate itself from a CodeGenInstruction and provide
///   the information necessary for integration into the tables.
/// X86RecognizableInstr.cpp contains the implementation for a single
///   instruction.
