As you'll have noticed I'm tweaking the coverage machinery to
try and find hotspots and deadspots. My immediate plan for this
a) fix .da files so they don't grow indefinitly large - nearly done
b) add some kind of __builtin_unexpected (), to mark expected
c) write some perl scripts to munge the gcov output
I hope some of that is useful to others.
This is all ultra-cool BTW. I did runs with testsuite on homemade gcov-ed
GDB years ago, came up with lots of useful insight about what was hot and
what was not. I'm looking forward to trying out your new stuff!
