[AIX][MC][NFC] Explicitly set containing csects on XCOFF Symbols

Authored by sfertile on Aug 9 2019, 2:10 PM.


  • Add a setter and getter for the containing csect of a symbol
  • In setting containing csect, don't set twice. Also assert if trying to set a different section.
  • Set containing csect explicitly for globals
  • Map the TOC Anchor symbol to it's containing csect
  • use getContainingCSect() to lookup csect rather than the fragment in XCOFFObjectWriter

Is it necessary to put these two functions in the .cpp file?
These two functions doesn't look complicated, and should be Okay to exist in the header.

Minor nits:

  • s/it's/its/;
  • Move "it" closer to its referent (the TOC anchor) by swapping the order of the first sentence: Since [ ... ], map [ ... ].

That way, other methods can freely query it, assuming that it is set.

We were stretching the definition of an NFC patch by creating but not using the TOC-base on AIX. I've striped this down to the NFC part and will post a separate patch for the TOC base change that includes a test change to reflect the TOC-base being created.
