            Bug ID: 599
           Summary: Usage of LSB0 in EXTRA pseudo-code
           Product: Libre-SOC's first SoC
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: CONFIRMED
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: ---
         Component: Specification

Consider the pseudo-code for register number augmentation:


Accorting to the tables below, it seems that the bit for scalar/vector
selection in "spec" is intended to be its MSB.

So, in MSB0 notation, it should be spec[0], not spec[2].

The augmentation bits then are the two less significant, so it should be
spec[1:2], not spec[0:1].

In other words:

if extra3_mode:
    spec = EXTRA3
    spec = EXTRA2 << 1 # same as EXTRA3, shifted
if spec[0]: # vector (MSB of spec)
     return (RA << 2) | spec[1:2]
else:         # scalar
     return (spec[1:2] << 5) | RA
