Their are 2 problems I'm looking to solve:
1) How do we unit-test the integrated assembler when there are fixups?
2) Can we avoid the duplication in encoding a fixup versus encoding an
In the case of ADR, the fixup was properly being shifted for Thumb mode,
but the immediate was not. In my first attempt to fix this (and another
developer as well), we patched the .td file, which fixed the immediate and
broke the fixup.
So I wonder, do all fixups require full object code layout? For example,
in the context of Thumb, can we always convert:
adr r0, lbl
adr.n r0, #0
I understand why clang's "-S" option would never want to output this syntax
(GCC doesn't grok all UAL syntax). But for LLVM's internal assembler,
should we be trying to remove some fixups with a text-to-text pass before
encoding? I see llvm-mc has a '-mc-relax-all' option, but doesn't seem to
do anything for me - unrelated?
