Description
The Address class on SPARC currently handles both, addresses and address literals, what makes the Address class more complicated than it has to be.  Adding an AddressLiteral class on SPARC which handles pointer addresses, like this is already the case on x86, seems to be the right thing to do.

                                    

Comments
EVALUATION

Using AddressLiteral instead of Address where appropriate is straightforward.
