Do we want to be parsing the @plt for things other than call/tail? PseudoLLA also takes a bare_symbol but @plt isn't valid. Currently we parse bar@plt as a valid bare symbol; however, GNU as will reject it with illegal operands (as I understand it, this is because it doesn't treat @ as part of a valid identifier).

This can be inlined in LowerCall, especially once the fno-plt stuff is gone, as it's the only user.

This seems to be X86-specific in LLVM; do we really need this in RISC-V? Clang's test/CodeGen/noplt.c gives a normal call foo@plt when compiled with riscv64-linux-gnu-gcc -fpic -fno-plt, so I would remove this and the related code.

Hmm, probably a good idea. I guess I'd have to add yet another operand type in RISCVInstrInfo. Checking Operands[0] for "call" or "tail" seems a bit hacky to me, but maybe it's a reasonable approach?

OK, that makes things a lot simpler for LowerCall then. Is there no case where calls need to be lowered using GOT?

Split into MC layer (patch D55335) and codegen (this patch).

lewis-revill retitled this revision from [RISCV, WIP] Lower calls through GOT and PLT to [RISCV, WIP] Lower calls through PLT.
lewis-revill edited the summary of this revision. (Show Details)

Removed capability of lowering through GOT since there is no apparent need to do so.

Rebased to use D55560 and with fewer dependencies

lewis-revill retitled this revision from [RISCV, WIP] Lower calls through PLT to [RISCV] Lower calls through PLT.


Rebased and added testing using -relocation-model=pic in 'calls.ll'. Also added a dso_local callee to 'calls.ll' since this affects whether PLT is used for PIC.
