[PATCH] [AArch64] Change int64_t from 'long long int' to 'long int' for AArch64 target.

Hi folks,

I created a test file where I include arm_neon.h.

I am using Linaro GCC 4.8 (calling the installation dir $GCC48). And it
fails to compile my test with errors like:

	typedef __attribute__((neon_vector_type(1)))  int64_t int64x1_t;

I invoke clang setting -target, --sysroot, -gcc-toolchain, mfpu=neon

	clang -mfpu=neon --target=aarch64-linux-gnu
-sysroot=$$GCC48/aarch64-linux-gnu/libc --gcc-toolchain=$GCC48 test.c

The problem is the word size defined as 64 bits in this gcc header file:

It should be 32 bits.

It seems this commit from Jiangning works around the in GCC sysroot issue:
	3dc9e80234b0112a0463feaf65049bcd858d1d36 (For AArch64, support
builtin neon vector type with 'long' as base element type) 

But it looks like GCC should be fixed instead.

What do you think?

Hi Kevin,

I think this patch will break 32-bit ARM and 64-bit Darwin, both of which
define int64_t to be "long long" for various reasons (32-bit ARM because
"long" is 32-bits, Darwin because Just Because. ;-)).

ItaniumMangle should be fine: that mangling is only used on AArch64
non-Darwin so globally changing it is fine. Targets.cpp looks fine to me as

For SemaChecking.cpp, the getNeonEltType is shared among all
implementations; perhaps give it another bool parameter and rename the
existing one? IsPolyUnsigned & IsInt64Long for example.

NeonEmitter.cpp is a bigger problem, since there doesn't appear to be an
"int64_t" type string available. It seems reasonably easy to add one
(lib/AST/ASTContext.cpp -- DecodeTypeFromStr and a comment in Builtins.def),
but I'm not sure if there's a better solution (we're running out of

There are also a couple of bugs on the host side:

-        qmask |= 1ULL << GetNeonEnum(Proto, TypeVec[ti]);
+        qmask |= 1UL << GetNeonEnum(Proto, TypeVec[ti]);

qmask and mask are Clang-internal 64-bit variables. This change will
truncate various lines in arm_neon.inc (#included into
lib/Sema/SemaChecking.cpp) when Clang is built on platforms with a 32-bit

The same goes for the change to the "case".
