Re: Patch for PR28490 (IA64 symbol+offset)


Can I check in the following change to your patch?  It affects both
Linux and HP-UX but the failures only show up on HP-UX in ILP32 mode.
I tested it on IA64 HP-UX and Linux with no regressions.

Basically this patch makes function pointers legitimate constants.
Without this change I get the following regressions on HP-UX in ILP32


Without this change, function pointers are getting handled with:

| .LC0:
|         data8   nested_2.1690#
| 	addl r15 = @gprel(.LC0), gp

after the change we get:

| 	addl r15 = @ltoff(@fptr(nested_2.1690#)), gp

Both work in 64 bit mode but the first version is not working in 32 bit
mode.  Storing the function pointer as a 64 bit value may not be working
correctly.  Anyway, the second version seems like a better option for
all platforms and works everywhere.

OK for checkin as a regression fix?
