           Summary: address constants forced to registers in small-model
                    static-reloc x86-64
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Backend: X86
        AssignedTo: unassignedbugs at nondot.org
        ReportedBy: djg at cray.com

Weak, extern and linkonce symbols are currently excluded from address
operands in x86-64 with the small memory model and static linking.

With this test case:

%x = external global int


int %foo(long %i) {
        %a = getelementptr int* %x, long %i
        %t = load int* %a
        ret int %t

Currently llc -march=x86-64 -code-model=small -relocation-model=static
emits this:

        leaq x(%rip), %rcx
        movl (%rcx,%rax,4), %eax

I believe should emit this:

        movl x(,%rax,4), %eax

Unless I'm missing something, it should be safe to let llc do this,
with the following patch.
