Not sure what you are asking here. The immediate adds to the current
value, where as the indirect will then look what's at that location.

If the arg (val) is 0xffffffffabcd0000

u64 val+8

Will return: 0xffffffffabcd0008

u64 val[1]

will return what's at location 0xffffffffabcd0008

"u64 val+8[0]" is the same as "u64 val[1]"

Note: "u64 val[0]+8" will return what's at location 0xffffffffabcd0000
plus 8.
