Ah hah! So this is about TRAP_SYSCALL. :-)
TRAP_SYSCALL is a simulator-only facility to simplify printf,exit,etc.
I gather you want r0 to be 1 before the trap is taken,
violating standard parallel execution semantics: all inputs
read before any outputs written.
i.e. you want the trap to _read_ the value of r0 and get 1.
This is different than the violation I refered to previously
where the trap will _write_ the value of r0, say, before
other insns have read their inputs.
It seems like you're trying to fix a broken program by breaking
(or at least hacking) the simulator. How about instead just having
a rule that says the TRAP_SYSCALL trap cannot be paired with instructions
that set up inputs for the syscall? This would be no different
than trying to make
asm ("add r1,r0 || ldi r0,#1"); // increment r1 by 1
work. It doesn't work because the `add' will read the value of r0
before the ldi has set it to 1.
[apologies if I got the syntax wrong, haven't programmed m32r
assembler in a while :-)]
