Re: [PATCH] change %G argument from gcall* to gimple*

Thanks for the patch.

I'm afraid I've been touching some of the same code recently (as part
of my work on dumpfile.c), so I think this patch needs rebasing and
retesting (sorry!).

In particular, my r263181:
   ("c-family: clean up the data tables in c-format.c",
    aka 98605dea9f97f74e6a5e75308774c117292b184e)
cleaned up part of c-format.c that your patch touches; I think your
patch is from before then.

Also, I noticed that your patch conflicts with my (not yet approved)
patch here:

   [PATCH 5/5] Formatted printing for dump_* in the middle-end

(which *adds* a usage of "gimple *" for a new pretty_printer subclass,
whereas yours changes the "gcall *" usage to "gimple *"), so we need to
sync up on that - I'm volunteering for me to wait for you (but please
send me a heads-up email when you eventually commit).

I feel a bit hypocritical saying this, as I dislike writing ChangeLog
entries, but I find this one too terse: I find myself asking "what
adjustment is being made, and why?"

How about something like:


	PR tree-optimization/86650
	* c-objc-common.c (c_tree_printer): Move usage of
	EXPR_LOCATION (t) and TREE_BLOCK (t) from within percent_K_format
	to this callsite.

or somesuch (assuming that I've read the intent of the change
correctly); *is* that the intent of this part of the patch?

Likewise, I find this too terse, and it's incomplete: it's missing the
changes to gcc_diag_char_table and to init_dynamic_diag_info.

How about something like this:

	* c-format.c (local_gcall_ptr_node): Rename...
	(local_gimple_ptr_node): this.
	(gcc_diag_char_table): Update comment for "%G".
	(init_dynamic_diag_info): Update from "gcall *" to "gimple *".
	* c-format.h (T89_G): Update to be "gimple *" rather than
	"gcall *".

FWIW I use this script to help ChangeLog entries.
It saves a lot of gruntwork:

(but the remaining work is still tedious, alas)

See the suggestion above for c-objc-common.c (c_tree_printer).

The filenames in this changelog entry aren't in alphabetical order. Was
that deliberate, or an accident of the way you generated them?  It
makes it harder to review the change, as the changes aren't in the
same order as the patch itself.  I think it can occasionally be useful
to do them out-of-order if it helps express the intent of the change,
but I  don't think that's the case here; keeping them in alphabetical
order is probably best here.

Please can you provide a less terse ChangeLog describing the intent of
the changes.  I believe the two essential things in your patch are:

(a) moving the usage of EXPR_LOCATION (t) and TREE_BLOCK (t) from
within percent_K/G_format out to all of their callsites, and

(b) the change from gcall * to gimple *,

assuming I'm reading things right, but in my pre-caffeinated state I'd
greatly prefer the ChangeLog spell that out.

The patch is almost ready.  Please rebase to past r263181, updating
accordingly, and retest, and please provide a less terse ChangeLog
(then repost for re-review).
