I was re-watching the prediction video this morning. It seems like there are some serious advantages to the EBB chaining prediction approach, but it also seems like one drawback of it is that you completely lose the ability to make predictions about secondary or tertiary exits from an EBB, such as you might find in a loop within a loop. It seems like this makes the mill better at branchy or unstructred code at the expense of making it worse at the sort of code DSPs would typically excel at. Am I missing something?
