Improve PowerPC unwind support

Authored by jhibbits on Nov 9 2014, 10:45 AM.



Taking advantage of the new 'CFAIsRegisterDereferenced' CFA register type, add
full stack unwind support to the PowerPC/PowerPC64 ABI. Also, add a new
register set for powerpc32-on-64, so the register sizes are correct. This also
requires modifying the ProcessMonitor to add support for non-uintptr_t-sized
register values.

I'd like to think about the 32-on-64 implementation some more. Can you submit the unwind changes separately first?

I'd specifically call out this fix in the commit message

Unfortunately I can't. The unwind code depends on the 32-on-64 code in
order to give a valid back trace so becomes pointless without it. I guess I
could separate them and there would be no regression from the current
state, there just would be no gain.

If you need this to be dynamically determined, when the ABISysV_ppc::CreateInstance method is called, it is passed an ArchSpec - that object has a GetAddressByteSize() method. I think it would be safe to cache the value in an ivar, or copy the ArchSpec. Greg might know of some reason why that's a bad idea -- but I think if a Target changes architecture, the ABI should be updated as well.

You should be calling SetCFARegisterNumberToDereference() here, shouldn't you?

Same thihng, this should be SetCFARegisterNumberToDereference().

This seems like it ought to have a comment.

This will be dead code for one of the two cases (whichever has the same size as uintptr_t) no?

Remove uintptr_t usage, it's handled by uint32_t and uint64_t.


I'd like to revisit ReadRegOperation::Execute later on for endianness considerations (for i386 on x86_64 and ppc on ppc64), but am happy with this for now.
