X86: Rework inline asm integer register specification.

Authored by MatzeB on Jun 29 2015, 2:00 PM.



This is a new version of

It turned out that when you specify an integer register in inline asm on
x86 you get the register of the required type size back. That means that
X86TargetLowering::getRegForInlineAsmConstraint() has to accept any of
the integer registers and adapt its size to the given target size which
may be any 8/16/32/64 bit sized type. Surprisingly that means given a
constraint of "{ax}" and a type of MVT::F32 we need to return X86::EAX.

This change makes this face explicit, the previous code seemed like
working by accident because there it never returned an error once a
register was found. On the other hand this rewrite allows to actually
return errors for invalid situations like requesting an integer register
for an i128 type.

Hi Matthias,

LGTM with a fix for the testcases (missing FileCheck etc). Also if you can avoid the temporary file it'd be great.
