mips32r6 and mips64r6 are actually new isas at both the asm source and
opcode levels (pre-r6 code cannot run on r6) and thus need to be
treated as a new subarch. the following changes are made, some of
which yield code generation improvements for non-r6 targets too:
- add subarch logic in configure script and reloc.h files for dynamic
- suppress use of .set mips2 asm directives (used to allow mips2
atomic instructions on baseline mips1 builds; the kernel has to
emulate them on mips1) except when actually needed. they cause wrong
instruction encodings on r6, and pessimize inlining on at least some
- only hard-code sync instruction encoding on mips1.
- use "ZC" constraint instead of "m" constraint for llsc memory
operands on r6, where the ll/sc instructions no longer accept full
- only hard-code rdhwr instruction encoding with .word on targets
(pre-r2) where it may need trap-and-emulate by the kernel.
otherwise, just use the instruction mnemonic, and allow an arbitrary
destination register to be used.
using the actual mcontext_t definition rather than an overlaid pointer
array both improves correctness/readability and eliminates some ugly
hacks for archs with 64-bit registers bit 32-bit program counter.
also fix UB due to comparison of pointers not in a common array
the TLS ABI spec for mips, powerpc, and some other (presently
unsupported) RISC archs has the return value of __tls_get_addr offset
by +0x8000 and the result of DTPOFF relocations offset by -0x8000. I
had previously assumed this part of the ABI was actually just an
implementation detail, since the adjustments cancel out. however, when
the local dynamic model is used for accessing TLS that's known to be
in the same DSO, either of the following may happen:
1. the -0x8000 offset may already be applied to the argument structure
passed to __tls_get_addr at ld time, without any opportunity for
2. __tls_get_addr may be used with a zero offset argument to obtain a
base address for the module's TLS, to which the caller then applies
immediate offsets for individual objects accessed using the local
dynamic model. since the immediate offsets have the -0x8000 adjustment
applied to them, the base address they use needs to include the
it would be possible, but more complex, to store the pointers in the
dtv array with the +0x8000 offset pre-applied, to avoid the runtime
cost of adding 0x8000 on each call to __tls_get_addr. this change
could be made later if measurements show that it would help.
despite documentation that makes it sound a lot different, the only
ABI-constraint difference between TLS variants II and I seems to be
that variant II stores the initial TLS segment immediately below the
thread pointer (i.e. the thread pointer points to the end of it) and
variant I stores the initial TLS segment above the thread pointer,
requiring the thread descriptor to be stored below. the actual value
stored in the thread pointer register also tends to have per-arch
random offsets applied to it for silly micro-optimization purposes.
with these changes applied, TLS should be basically working on all
supported archs except microblaze. I'm still working on getting the
necessary information and a working toolchain that can build TLS
binaries for microblaze, but in theory, static-linked programs with
TLS and dynamic-linked programs where only the main executable uses
TLS should already work on microblaze.
alignment constraints have not yet been heavily tested, so it's
possible that this code does not always align TLS segments correctly
on archs that need TLS variant I.
clang does not presently support the "v" constraint we want to use to
get the result from $3, and trying to use register...__asm__("$3") to
do the same invokes serious compiler bugs. so for now, i'm working
around the issue with an extra temp register and putting $3 in the
clobber list instead of using it as output. when the bugs in clang are
fixed, this issue should be revisited to generate smaller/faster code
like what gcc gets.
the fields in the mcontext_t are long long (for no good reason) even
on 32-bit mips, so the offset of the instruction pointer (as a word)
varies depending on endianness.
basically, this version of the code was obtained by starting with
rdp's work from his ellcc source tree, adapting it to musl's build
system and coding style, auditing the bits headers for discrepencies
with kernel definitions or glibc/LSB ABI or large file issues, fixing
up incompatibility with the old binutils from aboriginal linux, and
adding some new special cases to deal with the oddities of sigaction
and pipe syscall interfaces on mips.
at present, minimal test programs work, but some interfaces are broken
or missing. threaded programs probably will not link.
