If you want something that can take an address like 0x1000 and you ask for its AddressClass and it sees that its address class is eAddressClassCodeAlternateISA, and then you change it to be "0x1001", this will need to be a new format type.

We need to display all these entities in compressed address format. How about a new MIPS specific function in Address and Target class which would do this.

Address Address::GetCallableAddress(Target *target);
lldb::addr_t Target::GetCallableAddress (lldb::addr_t load_addr, AddressClass addr_class);
