The low two bits of instructions with primary opcodes 58 and 62 are part
of the opcode, not the offset.  These instructions can not have offsets
with the low two bits non-zero.

That is only part of it.  The other thing is you have to make sure those
low bits are zero *already* (and then you do not need the mask anymore).
For example, if the low two bits are not zero load the offset into a
register instead (and then do ldx or lwax).
