No

Some ports, such as hc08 support GETBYTE or GETWORD. However the regression tests do not test this functionality (grep getByte support/regression/gen/hc08/*/*.asm doesn't find anything, same for GetWord).
There should be regression tests for this functionality, to warn us in case GETBYTE or GETWORD get completly broken.

    For mcs51-small genGetByte is found in bug1921073.asm and bug1839277.asm. But both are mcs51-only tests for testing the generic pointer type indicator.
    And genGetWord is not found. So yes, some test cases are welcome.
