Re: Stack offset computation for incoming arguments.

Dear Eric,

Really Appreciate your reply here and made the following changes like

#define  ARG_POINTER_REGNUM 8           //Fake hard reg
#define FRAME _POINTER_REGNUM 9      // Fake hard reg
#define SP_REG  10

                          {ARG_POINTER_REGNUM, FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM},   \
                          {FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM, STACK_POINTER_REGNUM} }

 The ARG and FRAME  reg are not marked as fixed regs ,but marked as
call used regs respectively.

The  reload pass is eliminating the arg and fp regs to sp  ,when the
sample is  run with -fomit-frame-pointer  option, i.e

$t-gcc -S -fomit-frame-pointer  sample.c

But without the âfomit-frame-pointer  option the arg and fp is not
replaced with sp.

Please help us regrading with   any hints ??

Thank you
