Re: ipa-visibility TLC 2/n


I'm glad that you're making progress.

The AIX support handles AIX XCOFF assembler syntax and chooses
appropriate sections, but it would not choose to emit an extra
definition. If there are multiple definitions, then the varasm macros
are being invoked multiple times for the same symbol.
