Nice, thanks!

Do you have an idea of what would it take to also model the data field?




The syntax in examples does not correspond to the assembly format below.


How does this behave when the same symbol is listed more the once in the constructor list? Should we add a check?

The data field in the corresponding LLVM globals has too low-level semantics and surrounding context attached to it to be able to meaningfully describe in MLIR at this stage -- it's connected to object file sections and linkers, and is sensitive to binary formats.

The LLVM global ctors/dtors list itself doesn't appear to care about duplicates. They are just sorted based on priority and called (so potentially multiple times based on a quick read of the LLVM code). But I actually missed adding verifiers. We should have been checking for example that the sizes of array attributes matched.

Address some review comments.

I see, thanks! Let's please have verifiers for the equal number of elements in the arrays and also for symbol references referring to symbols that are actually defined as functions.

Add verifiers to check symbol and priority list sizes, and for valid
defined functions. Switch priority to i32.

Indent and update doc.

Update op doc.

Drop unnecessary header.

Gentle ping @ftynse - this one is now ready for review.

Move static method above.

Ultra-nit: sometimes there are two spaces between sentences and sometimes there is only one, I don't mind either, but let's be consistent.


Nit: explicit this-> looks unnecessary here.
