Represent runtime preemption in the IR.
Currently we do not represent runtime preemption in the IR, which has several
- The semantics of GlobalValues differ depending on the object file format you are targeting (as well as the relocation-model and -fPIE value).
- We have no way of disabling inlining of run time interposable functions, since in the IR we only know if a function is link-time interposable. Because of this llvm cannot support elf-interposition semantics.
- In LTO builds of executables we will have extra knowledge that a symbol resolved to a local definition and can't be preemptable, but have no way to propagate that knowledge through the compiler.
This patch adds preemptability specifiers to the IR with the following meaning:
dso_local --> means the compiler may assume the symbol will resolve to a
definition within the current linkage unit and the symbol may be accessed
directly even if the definition is not within this compilation unit.
dso_preemptable --> means that the compiler must assume the GlobalValue may be
replaced with a definition from outside the current linkage unit at runtime.
To ease transitioning dso_preemptable is treated as a 'default' in that
low-level codegen will still do the same checks it did previously to see if a
symbol should be accessed indirectly. Eventually when IR producers emit the
specifiers on all Globalvalues we can change dso_preemptable to mean 'always
access indirectly', and remove the current logic.
