Improve diagnostics for instruction mapping

Authored by abeserminji on Jan 5 2018, 10:13 AM.



While mapping instructions for microMIPS, I made an error in capitalization of one field which led to a segfault. This patch improves diagnostic for this case, displaying reasonable message instead of segfault.

recVal -> RecVal.

I believe you should use the overloaded variant of PrintFatalError that takes a source location of a record. i.e:

PrintFatalError(CurInstr->getLoc(), "No value " + RowField->getAsString() + " found in \"" +
                CurInstr->getName() + "\" instruction description.");

This gives the following error message:

/Users/simon/dev/llvm/llvm/test/TableGen/ error: No value "BaseName" found in "SimpleInstr" instruction description.
def SimpleInstr : SimpleRel, INSTR_DEF;

Which is a better in my opinion as directly points to the record which lacks the named value.
