Re: Patch: fix ObjC regression (sort of)

If it is not a regression, I think it should wait for gcc 4.1. I take it this is
already in apple-ppc-branch, right?

Depends on how you define regression. Yes, it's in apple-ppc-branch.

The ObjC representation of calls to objc_msgSend was
changed to use OBJ_TYPE_REF rather than NOP_EXPR. Nobody
taught get_callee_fndecl about this change, which means that such
calls are treated as calls through a pointer. This is wrong and a regression.
However, I don't know of any user-visible effect this has, so I can't
provide a testcase, and you may consider this isn't suitable for stage 3.
(I know about it because it broke a local Apple patch.) Built on
darwin and ObjC testsuite run (change is local to ObjC bits).

        * objc/objc-act.h:  Declare it.
        * objc/objc-lang.c (LANG_HOOKS_GET_CALLEE_FNDECL):  Use it.
