Instruction Operand Encoding

Op/En Operand 1 Operand 2 Operand 3
RRI ModRM:reg (w) ModRM:r/m (r, ModRM:[7:6] must be 11b) Imm8

Description

Shifts 8/16/32/64 bits in the second operand (source operand) left by the count specified in immediate byte and place the least significant 8/16/32/64 bits of the result in the destination operand. The higher bits of the destina-tion are zero-extended. The destination is set to zero if the count value is greater than 7 (for byte shift), 15 (for word shift), 31 (for doubleword shift) or 63 (for quadword shift).

Operation

KSHIFTLW

COUNT := imm8[7:0]
DEST[MAX_KL-1:0] := 0
IF COUNT <=15
    THEN DEST[15:0] := SRC1[15:0] << COUNT;
FI;

KSHIFTLB

COUNT := imm8[7:0]
DEST[MAX_KL-1:0] := 0
IF COUNT <=7
          THEN
                     DEST[7:0] := SRC1[7:0] << COUNT;
FI;

KSHIFTLQ

COUNT := imm8[7:0]
DEST[MAX_KL-1:0] := 0
IF COUNT <=63
          THEN
                     DEST[63:0] := SRC1[63:0] << COUNT;
FI;

KSHIFTLD

COUNT := imm8[7:0]
DEST[MAX_KL-1:0] := 0
IF COUNT <=31
          THEN
                     DEST[31:0] := SRC1[31:0] << COUNT;
FI;
