Hi, Borislav

     Thanks for the detailed explanation.
     "movq" will be used so that it is explicit to the code reader 
although the same binary is generated for "movq" and "mov" in this scenario.

     And thank you again for giving a lot of helps about removing the 
usage of explicit register variable.

Best regards
    Yakui
