Those ranges are even better than the table based documentation! The
tables contained an quite ugly bug which lead to this comment in the
/* Note that FLT_TO_INT_* instructions are vector-only instructions
* on Evergreen, despite what the documentation says. FLT_TO_INT
* can do both vector and scalar. */
Very interesting, but I couldn't such ranges for R6xx and R7xx. Alex do
you remember where you got that original documentation from?
Anyway I would still suggest to not use magic numbers, let's define the
beginning and end of ranges in r600_opcode.h instead, and then use those
defines inside the code.
