Re: How do you emit RTL for a jump to a mem/symbol instead of an asm label?

Don't worry about this until you have the basics working.  It is fiddly
work but not really hard.

You could have a look at the rs6000 patterns (in
"*return_and_restore_gpregs_<mode>_r11" and the function that creates
such patterns, "rs6000_emit_savres_rtx" in (rs6000.c).  This does a whole
bunch more than you need, but maybe you'll get the idea.  Some points:

- The pattern should describe all it does (restore what regs, etc.), not
  just the jump;
- You should set a JUMP_LABEL (to ret_rtx) on the jump, and it should _be_
  a jump_insn;
- You want a separate pattern in the machine description for this.
