[Driver, CodeGen] rename options to disable an FP cast optimization

Authored by spatel on Apr 29 2018, 8:28 AM.



As suggested in the post-commit thread for rL331056, we should match these clang options with the established vocabulary of the corresponding sanitizer option. Also, the use of 'strict' is well-known for these kinds of knobs, and we can improve the descriptive text in the docs.

So this intends to match the logic of D46135 but only change the words. I'll post the matching LLVM patch next and link it to this.

Overall makes sense to me.

Maybe add HelpText<""> to both of them, just to explain what they are,
specify that the first is the default, and the second relaxes language rules to help broken code.

It wouldn't hurt to duplicate this run-line, and explicitly pass -fno-strict-float-cast-overflow.

Patch updated:

  1. Improved language in docs.
  2. Added help text for clang options.
  3. Added driver test with -fstrict-float-cast-overflow specified explicitly.

I'll leave this up for further review in case there are other suggestions.
