I hope I am posting to the appropriate newsgroup. I want to implement
some "new" powerPC instructions for my research. I plan to use some of
the reserved bits in the instruction formats to do so.

The problem is - How do I make the compiler recognize this new
instruction and generate the correct bits in the binary? I guess I
could do this by hacking the instruction definition files in gcc. Can
anyone help me with this?
