13.38 ERET

Exception Return.

Syntax

ERET{cond}

where:

cond

is an optional condition code.

Usage

In a processor that implements the Virtualization Extensions,you can use ERET to perform a returnfrom an exception taken to Hyp mode.

Operation

When executed in Hyp mode, ERET loadsthe PC from ELR_hyp and loads the CPSR from SPSR_hyp. When executedin any other mode, apart from User or System, it behaves as:

  • MOVS PC, LR in the A32 instruction set.

  • SUBS PC, LR, #0 in the T32 instruction set.

Notes

You must not use ERET in User or System mode. The assembler cannot warn you about this because it has no information about what the processor mode is likely to be at execution time.

ERET is the preferred synonym for SUBS PC, LR, #0 in the T32 instruction set.

Architectures

This 32-bit instruction is available in A32 and T32.

There is no 16-bit version of this instruction in T32.
