Implemented sane default for llvm-objdump's relocation Value format

Authored by dcederman on Aug 8 2017, 6:41 AM.



"Unknown" for platforms that were not manually added into the switch
did not make sense at all. Now it prints Target + addend for all
elf-machines that were not explicitly mentioned.

Addresses PR21059 and PR25124.

Initially this problem was mentioned to me by James during review.
I found at least 2 PRs that mention objdump and Unknown.
Perhaps there are more, as this deficiency is rather obvious in code.

And after the other changes, I think this can go back to an int64_t.


This "-P" suffix here doesn't seem particularly useful, I'd suggest just removing it.

The reloc name is printed, I don't think the fact that PC is subtracted needs to be printed as part of the output here as well. (Perhaps the intent was to print the "full formula", but if so, this list is woefully incomplete, and I don't think that's particularly worthwhile to spend time implementing).


I believe this list of case statements which override addend = None is bogus and should go away. Most of these have SHT_REL relocations, which put the addend in the instruction -- and thus don't get printed anyways (see also TODO note above -- although I'd note that GNU objdump also doesn't print SHT_REL addends either). And when they _do_ actually have addends, I see no reason why we would not want them printed.

Other than that, looks good.

I got referred to this revision by @jyknight after I created a patch to add Sparc to the list in getRelocationValueString. Changing the default does seem like a better approach, so I will update this revision following the comment. I hope that is ok.
