MOVPRFX (unpredicated)

Move prefix (unpredicated).

The unpredicated MOVPRFX instruction is a hint to hardware that the instruction may be combined with the destructive instruction which follows it in program order to create a single constructive operation. Since it is a hint it is also permitted to be implemented as a discrete vector copy, and the result of executing the pair of instructions with or without combining is identical. The choice of combined versus discrete operation may vary dynamically.

Although the operation of the instruction is defined as a simple unpredicated vector copy, it is required that the prefixed instruction at PC+4 must be an SVE destructive binary or ternary instruction encoding, or a unary operation with merging predication, but excluding other MOVPRFX instructions. The prefixed instruction must specify the same destination vector as the MOVPRFX instruction. The prefixed instruction must not use the destination register in any other operand position, even if they have different names but refer to the same architectural register state. Any other use is UNPREDICTABLE.
