Software code caches help amortize the overhead of dynamic binary transformation by enabling reuse of transformed code. Since code caches contain a potentiallyaltered copy of every instruction that executes, run-time access to a code cache can be a very powerful opportunity. Unfortunately, current research infrastructures lack the ability to model and direct code caching, and as a result, past code cache investigations have required access to the source code of the binary transformation system… CONTINUE READING
