18.20.8 Output of Dispatch Tables

This concerns dispatch tables.

Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_ADDR_DIFF_ELT (stream, body, value, rel)

A C statement to output to the stdio stream stream an assembler pseudo-instruction to generate a difference between two labels. value and rel are the numbers of two internal labels. The definitions of these labels are output using (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label), and they must be printed in the same way here. For example,

fprintf (stream, "\t.word L%d-L%d\n",
         value, rel)

You must provide this macro on machines where the addresses in a dispatch table are relative to the table’s own address. If defined, GCC will also use this macro on all machines when producing PIC. body is the body of the ADDR_DIFF_VEC; it is provided so that the mode and flags can be read.

Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_ADDR_VEC_ELT (stream, value)

This macro should be provided on machines where the addresses in a dispatch table are absolute.

The definition should be a C statement to output to the stdio stream stream an assembler pseudo-instruction to generate a reference to a label. value is the number of an internal label whose definition is output using (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label). For example,

fprintf (stream, "\t.word L%d\n", value)
Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_CASE_LABEL (stream, prefix, num, table)

Define this if the label before a jump-table needs to be output specially. The first three arguments are the same as for (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label); the fourth argument is the jump-table which follows (a jump_table_data containing an addr_vec or addr_diff_vec).

This feature is used on system V to output a swbeg statement for the table.

If this macro is not defined, these labels are output with (*targetm.asm_out.internal_label).

Macro: ASM_OUTPUT_CASE_END (stream, num, table)

Define this if something special must be output at the end of a jump-table. The definition should be a C statement to be executed after the assembler code for the table is written. It should write the appropriate code to stdio stream stream. The argument table is the jump-table insn, and num is the label-number of the preceding label.

If this macro is not defined, nothing special is output at the end of the jump-table.

Target Hook: void TARGET_ASM_POST_CFI_STARTPROC (FILE *, tree)

This target hook is used to emit assembly strings required by the target after the .cfi_startproc directive. The first argument is the file stream to write the strings to and the second argument is the function’s declaration. The expected use is to add more .cfi_* directives.

The default is to not output any assembly strings.

Target Hook: void TARGET_ASM_EMIT_UNWIND_LABEL (FILE *stream, tree decl, int for_eh, int empty)

This target hook emits a label at the beginning of each FDE. It should be defined on targets where FDEs need special labels, and it should write the appropriate label, for the FDE associated with the function declaration decl, to the stdio stream stream. The third argument, for_eh, is a boolean: true if this is for an exception table. The fourth argument, empty, is a boolean: true if this is a placeholder label for an omitted FDE.

The default is that FDEs are not given nonlocal labels.

Target Hook: void TARGET_ASM_EMIT_EXCEPT_TABLE_LABEL (FILE *stream)

This target hook emits a label at the beginning of the exception table. It should be defined on targets where it is desirable for the table to be broken up according to function.

The default is that no label is emitted.

Target Hook: void TARGET_ASM_EMIT_EXCEPT_PERSONALITY (rtx personality)

If the target implements TARGET_ASM_UNWIND_EMIT, this hook may be used to emit a directive to install a personality hook into the unwind info. This hook should not be used if dwarf2 unwind info is used.

Target Hook: void TARGET_ASM_UNWIND_EMIT (FILE *stream, rtx_insn *insn)

This target hook emits assembly directives required to unwind the given instruction. This is only used when TARGET_EXCEPT_UNWIND_INFO returns UI_TARGET.

Target Hook: rtx TARGET_ASM_MAKE_EH_SYMBOL_INDIRECT (rtx origsymbol, bool pubvis)

If necessary, modify personality and LSDA references to handle indirection. The original symbol is in origsymbol and if pubvis is true the symbol is visible outside the TU.

Target Hook: bool TARGET_ASM_UNWIND_EMIT_BEFORE_INSN

True if the TARGET_ASM_UNWIND_EMIT hook should be called before the assembly for insn has been emitted, false if the hook should be called afterward.

Target Hook: bool TARGET_ASM_SHOULD_RESTORE_CFA_STATE (void)

For DWARF-based unwind frames, two CFI instructions provide for save and restore of register state. GCC maintains the current frame address (CFA) separately from the register bank but the unwinder in libgcc preserves this state along with the registers (and this is expected by the code that writes the unwind frames). This hook allows the target to specify that the CFA data is not saved/restored along with the registers by the target unwinder so that suitable additional instructions should be emitted to restore it.
