Just a FYI.
Default x86-64 relocation model is PIC. I think we should definitely
test that. x86-32 llc default is dynamic-no-pic. In order to test pic,
you have to pass something like this to the NewNightlyTest.pl script:
-test-opts "TARGET_FLAGS= TARGET_LLCFLAGS=\"-relocation-model=pic -
disable-fp-elim\" EXTRA_LLI_OPTS=\"-relocation-model=pic -disable-fp-
We probably ought to add an option to the script instead.
