Implement common symbol size calculation in llvm-size

Authored by khemant on Feb 2 2016, 1:17 PM.



Commons do not live in any sections. Their sizes need to be added to total size. This option adds them to total size. In Berkely format, this is shown in bss size. In Sys V format a new row named "*COM*" is added that shows the common totals. Both format will have this added to the grand total if the option is set.

This is similar to GNU size binutils tool.

This looks fine. Update, I'll take another look and sign off.

It is really easy to create common symbols with a given size from assembly. Please use llvm-mc instead of checking in a binary.

Indeed, as Rafael pointed already out, please convert the test to use MC. Thanks.

Do you actually need all this? To test just the common size I don't see you need any asm instruction.

I needed some section with non zero size for case where no common is specified.
Does that matter?

There are variables with all lower case. Do you want me to converst all locals to upper before merging this patch with upper case variables pertaining to this change?
