RFC: LLD range extension thunks
Hello Rui, Thanks for the comments - Synthetic sections and rewriting relocations I think that this would definitely be worth trying. It should remove the need for thunks to be represented in the core data structures, and would allow . It would also mean that we wouldn't have to associate symbols with thunks as the relocations would directly target the thunks. ARM interworking makes reusing

[LLD] thunk implementation correctness depends on order of input section.
I've been working on supporting ARM/Thumb interworking thunks in LLD and have encountered a limitation that I think it is worth bringing up in a wider context. This is all LLD specific, apologies if I've abused llvm-dev here. TL;DR summary: - Thunks in lld may not work if they are added to InputSections that have already been scanned. - There is a short term fix, but in the longer

[LLD] Writing thunks before the corresponding section
Hi, MIPS LA25 thunk is used to call PIC function from non-PIC code. Usually it contains three instructions: lui $25, %hi(func) addiu $25, $25, %lo(func) j func We can write such thunk in an arbitrary place of the generated file. But if a PIC function requires the thunk is the first routine in a section, we can optimize the code and escape jump instruction. To do so we just write the

RFC: LLD range extension thunks
After looking at this for a while, I do not think that this problem is NP-hard. With a finite "short branch" displacement k, I was not able to come up with a gadget that could create global constraints as would be needed to e.g. model an instance of 3SAT or vertex cover in terms of this problem. The problem is hard though. I believe that it is likely to be exponential in the "short

[LLD] thunk implementation correctness depends on order of input section.
First of all thanks for finding the bug. I agree with Rui that right now we can manage without general thunk infrastructure. Let's provide at least a few "thunk" implementation and after that reconsider necessity of common thunk framework. As to MIPS there is one more type of thunk (keyword is .MIPS.stubs) and one more optimization of current thunk (putting a thunk in the beginning

[LLD] Linker Relaxation
Here's an example using the gcc toolchain for embedded 32 bit RISC-V (my HiFive1 board): #include <stdio.h> int foo(int i){ if (i < 100){ printf("%d\n", i); } return i; } int main(){ foo(10); return 0; } After compiling to a .o with -O2 -march=RV32IC we get (just looking at foo) 00000000 <foo>: 0: 1141 addi sp,sp,-16

[LLD] RFC Range Thunks Implementation review for ARM and Mips
This RFC is primarily to support the review of the range extension thunks implementation of lld. This concerns ARM and Mips as all of the thunk creation step is skipped over if the target doesn't need thunks. Mips LA25 Thunks are not range extension Thunks but these are generated using the same code, I've kept the behaviour the same as it is now, although the implementation is obviously

[LLD] Writing thunks before the corresponding section
Hi, Sorry for delay with reply. It looks like now thunks can be implemented as a synthetic sections. In that case we give flexible solution and will be able to put thunks before/after related sections, using different alignment etc. As far as I know BFD linker uses the same approach at least for MIPS thunks. I will try to implement this idea. On Thu, Sep 8, 2016 at 1:44 AM, Rui Ueyama

[LLD] Writing thunks before the corresponding section
Sure. One thing I want to remind you is that there is a place in Writer.cpp where we assume all synthetic sections were appended to end of Sections list. Look for `llvm::reverse`. If you add synthetic section thunks right before/after non-synthetic sections, you also want to change that. On Tue, Nov 29, 2016 at 1:18 PM, Simon Atanasyan <simon at atanasyan.com> wrote: > Hi, > >

Adding a new target to 'llvm-lld'
I'm not aware of a written guide either. In 2016 I did a talk on that subject at the LLVM Cauldron (http://llvm.org/devmtg/2016-09/#schedule) although quite a bit has changed since then so I'm hesitant to recommend it apart from general principles. I can't speak for the COFF side as I've only worked on the ELF side of LLD; my suggestions on where to start: -

[RFC][LLD][ARM] Initial ARM port for LLD
Hello everyone, The review http://reviews.llvm.org/D20951 implements initial support for the ARM architecture in LLD. To keep the patch size down, and to avoid the complexities of interworking between ARM and Thumb, there is just enough support for an ARM only Hello World to link and run on ARM Linux [*]. My main aim is to get this functionality committed as the basis of an ARM port

Adding a new target to 'llvm-lld'
Hi LLVM-Devs, I am considering switching to using 'llvm-lld' instead of Gnu 'ld' in a future revision of our out-of-tree target, and I am wondering is there a getting started guide for how to go about extending 'llvm-lld' to support an additional target. Thanks, MartinO -------------------------------------------------------------- Intel Research and Development

LLD: creating linker-generated sections as input sections instead of output sections
I would suggest converting only part of linker generated sections to input sections to reduce amount of code changes. For example it's unlikely that SymbolTableSection or StringTableSection would ever require such treatment, so why converting them to input sections? 2016-10-19 11:03 GMT+03:00 George Rimar <grimar at accesssoftek.com>: >>This idea popped up in the review thread

[LLD] RFC Range Thunks Implementation review for ARM and Mips
Are you suggesting other linker jobs such as creating _end symbols to the linker script? The linker script support was implemented after we wrote the current Writer class, so it is somewhat "plugged in" to the Writer. It might not be the best design, and not many other options have been explored. So there might be room to improve code by moving work loads from the Writer to the

[LLD] Linker Relaxation
Hi, Does lld support linker relaxation that may shrink code size? As far as I see lld seems to assume that the content of input sections to be fixed other than patching up relocations, but I believe some targets may benefit the extra optimization opportunity with relaxation. Specifically, I'm currently working on adding support for RISC-V in lld, and RISC-V heavily relies on linker relaxation

[LLVMdev] PSA: Perfectly forwarding thunks can now be expressed in LLVM IR with musttail and varargs

After thinking a bit more, I think this forwarding thunk representation works fine even on that target. Typically a forwarding thunk is called indirectly, or at least through a bitcast, so the LLVM IR

[LLD] Linker Relaxation
By the way, since this is an optional code relaxation, we can think about it later. The first thing I would do is to add RISC-V support to lld without code shrinking relaxations, which I believe is doable by at most a few hundreds lines of code.
