LDSMIN, LDSMINA, LDSMINAL, LDSMINL

Atomic signed minimum on word or doubleword in memory atomically loads a 32-bit word or 64-bit doubleword 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 one of WZR or XZR, LDSMINA and LDSMINAL load from memory with acquire semantics.
  • LDSMINL and LDSMINAL store to memory with release semantics.
  • LDSMIN 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 STSMIN, STSMINL.

Assembler Symbols

<Ws>

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.

<Wt>

Is the 32-bit name of the general-purpose register to be loaded, encoded in the "Rt" field.

<Xs>

Is the 64-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.

<Xt>

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose register to be loaded, encoded in the "Rt" field.

<Xn|SP>

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose base register or stack pointer, encoded in the "Rn" field.

Alias Conditions

AliasIs preferred when
STSMIN, STSMINLA == '0' && Rt == '11111'

Operation

bits(64) address;
bits(datasize) value;
bits(datasize) data;

if HaveMTEExt() then
    SetNotTagCheckedInstruction(!tag_checked);

value = X[s];
if n == 31 then
    CheckSPAlignment();
    address = SP[];
else
    address = X[n];

data = MemAtomic(address, MemAtomicOp_SMIN, value, ldacctype, stacctype);

if t != 31 then
    X[t] = ZeroExtend(data, regsize);

Operational information

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