Add -fapply-global-visibility-to-externs for -cc1

Authored by scott.linder on Jan 17 2019, 11:31 AM.



Introduce an option to request global visibility settings be applied to declarations without a definition or an explicit visibility, rather than the existing behavior of giving these default visibility. When the visibility of all or most extern definitions are known this allows for the same optimisations -fvisibility permits without updating source code to annotate all declarations.

"Declaration" doesn't unambiguously mean "non-definition" in language parlance;
maybe something like "external declaration" in both help text and the option name?
So maybe -fextern-visibility?

scott.linder retitled this revision from Add -fset-visibility-for-decls for -cc1 to Add -fextern-visibility for -cc1.

Update the -cc1 option name and docs; also update the LangOpt and docs.

I'm sorry to keep jerking you around, but let's spell out the flag a bit more: -fapply-global-visibility-to-externs. No reason not to be totally clear here. Thank you for updating the fields and descriptions, those all look good now.

No worries, I agree that we don't gain much with a shorter flag here; explicit seems preferable.
