I am currently reversing RUST binaries, and I often come across this block of instruction :
.text:000055F4BFB943F2 db 2Eh .text:000055F4BFB943F2 nop word ptr [rax+rax+00000000h] .text:000055F4BFB943FC nop dword ptr [rax+00h]
Which probably does nothing. I can see the rogue byte at the beginning, but pressing
C on IDA to disassemble from there gives no result. Thus, I am wondering why rust compiler create those instructions as they appear to be useless.
