+ * Opcode byteswap helpers
+ *
+ * These macros help with converting instructions between a canonical integer
+ * format and in-memory representation, in an endianness-agnostic manner.
+ *
+ * __mem_to_opcode_*() convert from in-memory representation to canonical form.
+ * __opcode_to_mem_*() convert from canonical form to in-memory representation.
+ *
+ *
+ * Canonical instruction representation:
+ *
+ * ARM: 0xKKLLMMNN
+ * Thumb 16-bit: 0x0000KKLL, where KK < 0xE8
+ * Thumb 32-bit: 0xKKLLMMNN, where KK >= 0xE8
+ *
+ * There is no way to distinguish an ARM instruction in canonical representation
+ * from a Thumb instruction (just as these cannot be distinguished in memory).
+ * Where this distinction is important, it needs to be tracked separately.
+ *
+ * Note that values in the range 0x0000E800..0xE7FFFFFF intentionally do not
+ * represent any valid Thumb-2 instruction. For this range,
+ * __opcode_is_thumb32() and __opcode_is_thumb16() will both be false.
