Approving this even though there is a problem with the logic in SelectAddressPCRel() as I trust that you will fix the obvious bug when committing this.


Won't this always evaluate to true if ConstPoolNode is not null? Perhaps this should have been bitwise-and?
Similarly below.


Similarly to the previous patch, this needs to be removed from the AIX block.

This one and the above conditions, I guess you mistakenly did bitwise OR instead of AND.
And better to put the second line in brackets, may be the precedence of the operations are correct, but given we are doing two types of operations ( logical and bitwise ) having brackets will make it more readable without having to worry about operator precedence.

Sorry I missed that git clang-format changed whitespace on unrelated lines.
Pulling out simply because of this seems like unnecessary churn for the bots
especially since the formatting is an improvement.
If someone would like me to pull it, I certainly don't mind.
I will definitely be more vigilant next time.

I commented on the commit b771c4a8, FYI
