LDSMINB, LDSMINAB, LDSMINALB, LDSMINLB
Atomic signed minimum on byte in memory atomically loads an 8-bit byte from memory, compares it against the value held in a register, and stores the smaller value back to memory, treating the values as signed numbers. The value initially loaded from memory is returned in the destination register.
- If the destination register is not WZR, LDSMINAB and LDSMINALB load from memory with acquire semantics.
- LDSMINLB and LDSMINALB store to memory with release semantics.
- LDSMINB has no memory ordering requirements.
For more information about memory ordering semantics see Load-Acquire, Store-Release.
For information about memory accesses see Load/Store addressing modes.
This instruction is used by the alias STSMINB, STSMINLB.

Is the 32-bit name of the general-purpose register holding the data value to be operated on with the contents of the memory location, encoded in the "Rs" field.
Is the 32-bit name of the general-purpose register to be loaded, encoded in the "Rt" field.
Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose base register or stack pointer, encoded in the "Rn" field.

If PSTATE.DIT is 1, the timing of this instruction is insensitive to the value of the data being loaded or stored.
