Re: PATCH: Do not align labels for jump tables

In which way do they not support it?

I've amended the testcase because of the following in m68k.c: override_options():

  if (align_labels > 2)
      warning (0, "-falign-labels=%d is not supported", align_labels);
      align_labels = 0;
  if (align_loops > 2)
      warning (0, "-falign-loops=%d is not supported", align_loops);
      align_loops = 0;

ASM_OUTPUT_ALIGN_WITH_NOP is defined in linux.h, so bare-metal m68k and fido issue a warning.

Now comes the interesting part: I've just checked the commit log of revision that added the code above, and it appears that definition of the macro was intended to go to m68k.h, not linux.h (rev. 128730):

+       * config/m68k/m68k.h (ASM_OUTPUT_ALIGN_WITH_NOP): New, use

+       * config/m68k/m68k.c (override_options): Reset align options,
+       if neccessary align macro isn't avaible.

Roman, have you accidentally committed the hunk to the wrong file?

The definition of ASM_OUTPUT_ALIGN_WITH_NOP seems OK to me to be moved to m68k.h hence fixing the underlying problem.

Mark, it seems I was deceived by the code and the falign-labels-1.c testcase should not exclude m68k and fido from the testing.
