Abstract
In this report we compare the cost and performance of
a new kind of restricted instruction cache architecture
| the stall cache | against several other conventional
cache architectures. The stall cache minimizes the size
of an on-chip instruction cache by caching only those
instructions whose instruction fetch phase collides with
the memory access phase of a preceding load or store
instruction.
