New issue 2152: s390x (2) Bootstrap

Richard Plangger:

As there is no comparable architecture supported, the skeletal structure needs to be further extended to implement the full 64-bit s390x assembler backend. The current considered candidate as a 'template' is the x86 assembler backend, because of it's variable length instruction encoding (CISC).
The target of this task is to prepare everything for the addition of the s390x backend. Ideally this means that the first tests of the test_runner should correctly pass and emit correct s390x assembler.
