Integer materializing can generate LU12I_W, ORI, LU32I_D, LU52I_D and
According to the sign-extended behavior of these instructions
(except ORI), the generated instruction sequence can be improved.
For example, load -1 into general register:
The ADDI_W instruction performs the operation that the [31:0] bit data
in the general register rj plus the 12-bit immediate simm12 sign
extension 32-bit data; the resultant [31:0] bit is sign extension, then
written into the general register rd.
lu12i.w $a0, -1 ori $a0, $a0, 2048
Improved with sign-extended instruction:
addi.w $a0, $zero, -1
