STG

Store Allocation Tag stores an Allocation Tag to memory. The address used for the store is calculated from the base register and an immediate signed offset scaled by the Tag granule. The Allocation Tag is calculated from the Logical Address Tag in the source register.

This instruction generates an Unchecked access.

It has encodings from 3 classes: Post-index , Pre-index and Signed offset

Post-index
(Armv8.5)

Post-index

STG <Xt|SP>, [<Xn|SP>], #<simm>

integer n = UInt(Xn);
integer t = UInt(Xt);
bits(64) offset = LSL(SignExtend(imm9, 64), LOG2_TAG_GRANULE);
boolean writeback = TRUE;
boolean postindex = TRUE;

Pre-index
(Armv8.5)

11011001001imm911XnXt

Pre-index

STG <Xt|SP>, [<Xn|SP>, #<simm>]!

integer n = UInt(Xn);
integer t = UInt(Xt);
bits(64) offset = LSL(SignExtend(imm9, 64), LOG2_TAG_GRANULE);
boolean writeback = TRUE;
boolean postindex = FALSE;

Signed offset
(Armv8.5)

313029282726252423222120191817161514131211109876543210
11011001001imm910XnXt

Signed offset

STG <Xt|SP>, [<Xn|SP>{, #<simm>}]

integer n = UInt(Xn);
integer t = UInt(Xt);
bits(64) offset = LSL(SignExtend(imm9, 64), LOG2_TAG_GRANULE);
boolean writeback = FALSE;
boolean postindex = FALSE;

Assembler Symbols

<Xt|SP>

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

<Xn|SP>

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

<simm>

Is the optional signed immediate offset, a multiple of 16 in the range -4096 to 4080, defaulting to 0 and encoded in the "imm9" field.

Operation

bits(64) address;

SetNotTagCheckedInstruction(TRUE);

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

if !postindex then
    address = address + offset;

bits(64) data = if t == 31 then SP[] else X[t];
bits(4) tag = AArch64.AllocationTagFromAddress(data);
AArch64.MemTag[address] = tag;

if writeback then
    if postindex then
        address = address + offset;

    if n == 31 then
        SP[] = address;
    else
        X[n] = address;
