PACGA

Pointer Authentication Code, using Generic key. This instruction computes the pointer authentication code for an address in the first source register, using a modifier in the second source register, and the Generic key. The computed pointer authentication code is returned in the upper 32 bits of the destination register.

Assembler Symbols

<Xd>

Is the 64-bit name of the general-purpose destination register, encoded in the "Rd" field.

<Xn>

Is the 64-bit name of the first general-purpose source register, encoded in the "Rn" field.

<Xm|SP>

Is the 64-bit name of the second general-purpose source register or stack pointer, encoded in the "Rm" field.

Operation

if source_is_sp then
    X[d] = AddPACGA(X[n], SP[]);
else
    X[d] = AddPACGA(X[n], X[m]);
