Change movzxw to movzwl in read_rgba_span_x86.S

While building Mesa with the trunk version of clang, using its
integrated assembler, it complains about the 'movzxw' mnemonic in

clang -c -I../../include -I../../src/mesa -I../../src/mesa/main -I/usr/local/include -O2 -pipe -fno-strict-aliasing -Wall -Wmissing-prototypes -std=c99 -ffast-math -fno-strict-aliasing  -fPIC  -DUSE_X86_ASM -DUSE_MMX_ASM -DUSE_3DNOW_ASM -DUSE_SSE_ASM -DHAVE_POSIX_MEMALIGN -DUSE_XCB -DPTHREADS -DUSE_EXTERNAL_DXTN_LIB=1 -DIN_DRI_DRIVER -DHAVE_ALIAS -DGLX_INDIRECT_RENDERING -DGLX_DIRECT_RENDERING x86/read_rgba_span_x86.S -o x86/read_rgba_span_x86.o
/tmp/cc-iXYqNz.s:528:2: error: invalid instruction mnemonic 'movzxw'
 movzxw (%eax), %ecx

This mnemonic is accepted by GNU as, but disassembling the relevant part
of a .o file produced by it, gives:

 436:   66 0f b7 08             movzww (%eax),%cx

This is a really weird opcode, apparently moving a word to a word,
without zero extending anything.  An Intel disassembler gives:

  00000466: 66 0F B7 08        movzx       cx,word ptr [eax]

Since the source code in question says:

        /* At this point there can be at most 1 pixel left to process.
         * Process it if needed.

and it is about 16-bit RBG565 pixels, it seems most likely a move from a
word to a dword with zero extension was intended, e.g.:

        /* At this point there can be at most 1 pixel left to process.
         * Process it if needed.

        testl   $0x01, %ecx
        je      .L01

        movzwl  (%eax), %ecx	/* opcodes: 0f b7 08 */
        movd    %ecx, %mm4

        pshufw  $0x00, %mm4, %mm0

which in Intel syntax would be: "movzx ecx,word ptr [eax]".

I believe Ian's the original author of that code.  Reassigning.
Comment 2 Brian Paul 2011-01-24 13:38:32 UTC
I'm committing this one too since it sounds like the same story as 33388.
