This patch was originally in D5304 (I could not find a way to reopen that revision).
It was accepted, commited and broke the build bots because the overloading of
the constructor of ArrayRef for braced initializer lists is not supported by all
toolchains. I then reverted it, and propose this fixed version that uses a plain
C array instead in makeDMB (that array is then converted implicitly to an
ArrayRef, but that is not behind an ifdef). Could someone confirm me whether
initialization lists for plain C arrays are supported by every toolchain used
to build llvm ? Otherwise I can just initialize the array in the old way:
args = ...; .. ; args = ...;
Below is the description of the original patch:
I had only tested this code for ARMv7 and ARMv8. This patch adds several fallback paths if the processor does not support dmb ish: - dmb sy if a cortex-M with support for dmb - mcr p15, #0, r0, c7, c10, #5 for ARMv6 (special instruction equivalent to a DMB) These fallback paths were chosen based on the code for fence seq_cst. Thanks to luqmana for having noticed this bug.
