I need to add two instructions for each function call. Do you mean I
should add this snippet in the Lowercall function? Or I should add a new

>> I'm trying to implement something similar to segmented stack mechanism by
using LLVM. Instead of inserting comparison code in the prologue of the
function, I would like do the probe before arguments pushed. The segmentd
stacks append a guarded page. This guard page will call the addmorestack
function if the probe instructions touch this guarded page. Otherwise, it
only stroe the return address in the bottom of the callee stack frame.
In order to achieve this, for each function call, two instructions are
needed to be inserted:
LEA %EAX, callee_return_label
MOV [ESP- callee_stack_frame_size - arguments_size], %EAX
So I need to insert two instructions (LEA and MOV) before each function
call. I don't know when how to insert these two instructions.
