i tend to make a new function or use an intermediary variable if that happens.

am not a fan of massive.selfexplanatory.variablenames.and.functionnames.

much better to have a short name and a good comment.

if you have good reason to use them i.am all in. bear in mind i keep sometimes
EIGHT 80x63 xterms open at once onscreen side by side (now 12 with a 4k screen)
so small functions and the 80 char limit is really important.

nuts. cant see it.  on phone. can you send yrl to gitweb thing?

yes. i cutpaste it in a hurry

this is just an experiment, from nmigen alu_hier.py example.

yes. in the "real" alu we have... mmm... not sure, actually.  probably -

do me a favour and raise a bugreport as a reminder to look up what rocketchip

yes, well spotted :)  that should come in at top.

clock on the side just for fits and giggles.

check ringoscillator benchs or grep -r benchs createpin to find examples.
