Unformatted text preview: set. If the DPL for a nonconforming-code segment is not equal to the CPL, or the RPL for the segment's segment selector is greater than the CPL. If the DPL for a conforming-code segment is greater than the CPL. If the DPL from a 64-bit call-gate is less than the CPL or than the RPL of the 64-bit call-gate. If the upper type field of a 64-bit call gate is not 0x0. If the segment selector from a 64-bit call gate is beyond the descriptor table limits. If the DPL for a code-segment obtained from a 64-bit call gate is greater than the CPL. If the code segment descriptor pointed to by the selector in the 64-bit gate doesn't have the L-bit set and the D-bit clear. If the segment descriptor for a segment selector from the 64-bit call gate does not indicate it is a code segment. #SS(0) If pushing the return offset or CS selector onto the stack exceeds the bounds of the stack segment when no stack switch occurs. If a memory operand effective address is outside the SS segment limit. If the stack address is in a non-canonical form. #SS(selector) If pushing the old values of SS selector, stack pointer, EFLAGS, CS selector, offset, or error code onto the stack violates the canonical boundary when a stack switch occurs. If a code segment or 64-bit call gate is not present. If the load of the new RSP exceeds the limit of the TSS. (64-bit mode only) If a far call is direct to an absolute address in memory. If a page fault occurs. If alignment checking is enabled and an unaligned memory reference is made while the current privilege level is 3. #NP(selector) #TS(selector) #UD #PF(fault-code) #AC(0) Vol. 2 3-103 INSTRUCTION SET REFERENCE, A-M CBW/CWDE/CDQE--Convert Byte to Word/Convert Word to Doubleword/Convert Doubleword to Quadword Opcode 98 98 REX.W + 98 Instruction CBW CWDE CDQE 64-Bit Mode Valid Valid Valid Compat/ Leg Mode Valid Valid N.E. Description AX sign-extend of AL. EAX sign-extend of AX. RAX sign-extend of EAX. Description Double the size of the source operand by means of sign extension. The CBW (convert byte to word) instruction copies the sign (bit 7) in the source operand into every bit in the AH register. The CWDE (convert word to doubleword) instruction copies the sign (bit 15) of the word in the AX register into the high 16 bits of the EAX register. CBW and CWDE reference the same opcode. The CBW instruction is intended for use when the operand-size attribute is 16; CWDE is intended for use when the operandsize attribute is 32. Some assemblers may force the operand size. Others may treat these two mnemonics as synonyms (CBW/CWDE) and use the setting of the operand-size attribute to determine the size of values to be converted. In 64-bit mode, the default operation size is the size of the destination register. Use of the REX.W prefix promotes this instruction (CDQE when promoted) to operate on 64-bit operands. In which case, CDQE copies the sign (bit 31) of the doubleword in the EAX register into the high 32 bits of RAX. Operation IF OperandSize = 16...
