Re: PATCH: PR middle-end/20218: Can't use __attribute__ ((visibility ("hidden"))) to hide a symbol

Here is the updated patch. It removes process_pending_assemble_externals
call in cgraph_optimize and uses ASM_OUTPUT_EXTERNAL to output hidden
references or definitions.

I changed maybe_assemble_visibility to return int so that we only
generate ".globl" directive for hidden references, which is needed
for Intel ia64 assembler.

H. J.,

I looks like this is going to cause bootstrap failure on mipsel-linux (once I get to a stage with -Werror):

The easy work around is to add


to mips.h. But Linux/mips won't get the bug fix. The better way
is to rewrite mips_output_external and remove mips_file_end like
what I did for ia64.

Great, if you create the patch for this 'better way' I will test it.

Otherwise I might be able to look at it later this week.
