> llvm-mc is tested in the other test case changed here. But, having a case for directly emitting relocs separate from going through textual asm is valuable, at the least because the "%hi" asm directive can parse into 3 different relocation types, depending on context. It'd be entirely plausible to have a bug that outputs an incorrect relocation in direct object writing, but have it turn out right after going through asm serialization/parsing.
How? If it prints the correct assembly (and we have a test for that)
and the correct assembly produces the correct .o (and we have a test
for that), what code path is missed that has a bug when producing a .o
