[llvm-dev] Passing arguments and returning value of struct or class

Hi all.

I'm new to LLVM and I'm having fun with LLVM.
Recently, I fount that function calls are changed based on the types of
return value and arguments.

For example, as following codes, the generated LLVM IRs are efferent from
what I expected them would be.
// simple C code
struct Float2
    float x; float y;
Float2 foo(Float2 a)
// simple LLVM IR
i64 foo(i64 a)

Even, if the size of structure is bigger than 64bit, the LLVM IRs are as
void  foo( struct. Float2* ,  struct.Float2 * )

So. I wonder where can I find these rules? I googled but I could not found
official documents or something likes that.

Please help me.
