Answer the following questions supposing the code listing shown starts from main().

fun: # int fun(int s) {
addi $sp, $sp, -8
sw $ra, 0($sp)
sw $a0, 4($sp)
blez $a0, base # if (s > 0) {
addi $a0, $a0, -1 # s--;
jal fun # r = fun(s);
j done # }
addi $v0, $zero, 0 # else r = 0;
lw $ra, 0($sp)
lw $a0, 4($sp)
addi $sp, $sp, 8
add $v0, $v0, $a0 # r = r + s;
jr $ra # return r; }
main: # int main() {
addi $sp, $sp, -8
sw $ra, 0($sp)
sw $s0, 4($sp)
addi $s0, $zero, 0 # x = 0
addi $a0, $zero, 2 # i = 2
blez $a0, end # while ( i > 0) {
jal fun
add $s0, $s0, $v0 # x = x + fun(i);
addi $a0, $a0, -1 # i--;
j loop # }
addi $v0, $s0, 0
lw $s0, 4($sp)
lw $ra, 0($sp)
addi $sp, $sp, 8
jr $ra # return x; }
Question 1 (10 points)
Machine A uses the single-cycle MIPS processor shown below executing at 500 MhZ.
(a) Describe the necessary changes to the single-cycle processor to add the jal and jr instructions. Be sure to consider datapath and control modifications.

(b) Fill in the table with the number of instructions that are executed and the execution time for the above program with Machine A.

Question 2 (10 points)
Machine B uses the 5-stage pipelined MIPS processor shown below executing at 2 GHz.
(a) Describe the changes needed to the pipelined processor to add a hazard detection unit, move branch into ID, and add the j, jal, and jr instructions at ID. There is no forwarding, so hazards stall...
