Re: [PATCH 5/6] [RS6000] Use standard call patterns for __tls_get_addr calls

Yes.  In fact, rs6000/ any_parallel_operand is useless
except as documentation.  The only thing it checks is that its operand
is a parallel, but that has already been checked.

No.  The purpose of the predicate is to match anything beyond the
vector of expressions.  So tls_gdld_aix* matches insns that look like:

     (set (match_operand:P 0 "gpc_reg_operand" "=b")
	  (call (mem:SI (match_operand:P 1))
		(match_operand:P 2 "unspec_tls")))
     (match_dup 2)

This is sufficiently different from other calls, by virtue of the
"(match_dup 2)".

Incidentally, I think tls_gdld_aix and tls_gdld_sysv could be merged
at the expense of complicating the length attribute expression.

Support for the TLS marker relocs was added to binutils in 2009 (git
commit 727fc41e077), so yes, the option is not likely to be useful

Presumably you mean -mno-tls-markers.  -mtls-markers is the default.

Huh, local testing of -mno-tls-markers showed a lack of a
TARGET_TLS_MARKERS check in rs6000_call_template_1.  Likely this would
blow up on AIX.  I'll test with the following delta.
