could you be so kind and reconsider merge of GHC/ARM calling convention
patch which is submitted here:
I'm just patch submitter and little tweaker. Original patch was
developed by David Terei for x86 and ported/retargeted for ARM by
Stephen Blackheath. We (at least Stephen and me) are using it happily
with GHC HEAD to compile Haskell code for ARM (and also on ARM).
I've submitted the patch last possible day for inclusion in LLVM 3.0
release in a hope it's simple enough for code review and inclusion.
Unfortunately the patch raised some question by Duncan which I've not
been able to explain fully. Later David Terei stepped in and explained
everything as I understand the email conversation.
As this patch is simple enough and should not affect LLVM code
generation when not used in cooperation with GHC also it changes just
one LLVM architecture (ARM), I still hope it might be merged for 3.0
If it adds to motivation: GHC HEAD already contains all needed support
for it so if the patch is merged it'll easy life of GHC 7.4.x (future)
release users on ARM hardware.
Thanks again for consideration!
