    Description

      Other platforms have memory access instruction functions in the Assembler or MacroAssembler which take an Address object as argument. PPC64 currently has some which take RegisterOrConstant (e.g. void Assembler::ld(Register d, RegisterOrConstant roc, Register s1)). Porting changes would be a bit easier if we had ld, lwa, lwz, etc. with Address object as operand.
