?? Gas from binutils must know it (and it does). Also gcc 2.7.2
produces dli statements. Look at this (it's from the 386 gcc, but
my alpha gcc produces the same):

 1008 0800 01001224             li      $18,0x00000001          # 1
 1009 0804 0000143C             la      $20,task
 1009      00009466 
 1010 080c 01001324             dli     $19,0x100000000
 1010      3C981300 
 1011 0814 2D180000             move    $3,$0
this is from mm/vmscan.c function swap_out.

which one ? alpha or 386 assembler ?


That process _deserves_ to die ("My name is Linus Torvalds, prepare to 
die").                                [Linus Torvalds on linux-kernel]
