[llvm-dev] SSE return w/ elf64 ABI

Looks like an attribute mixup in Clang. I can convince LLVM to generate
soft float code if I hack up the attributes with sed like so:

$ echo 'float f(float a, float b) { return a + b; }' | clang -x c++ -
--target=x86_64-linux -mno-sse -msoft-float -emit-llvm -S -o -  | sed -e
's/use-soft-float"="false"/use-soft-float"="true"/' | sed -e
's/noimplicitflo at//' | llc
        subq    $16, %rsp
        movl    %edi, -4(%rbp)
        movl    %esi, -8(%rbp)
        movl    -4(%rbp), %edi
        callq   __addsf3
        addq    $16, %rsp
        popq    %rbp
