Write the equivalent unoptimized SPARC assembly language instructions to perform the following C code fragment. Use the loop construct specified in class/Notes. C SPARC assembly a = -9129; /* x is mapped to %l0 */ /* a is mapped to %l1 */ while ( a < 129 ) { x = 391 + a; a++; } #5. Write the equivalent unoptimized SPARC assembly language instructions to perform the following C code fragment. C SPARC assembly x = x / 9876; /* x is mapped to %l2 */ Now optimize your answer to eliminate any delay slots : Optimized version of above SPARC assembly...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
