The right place to begin looking for strcpy and printf
optimizations probably is builtins.c and c-common.c.
OK, got these figured out. Whew, is this getting ugly.
The s390 mode doesn't have any longlong.h entries. I'll have to think
about this one.
The asms are trying to inline 32x32->64 multiply and equivalent
divide. I think that impossible reload means that GCC can't figure out
how to generate valid instructions to move the arguments into the
registers required by the asm constraints. Maybe the s390 port can
provide some guidance?
Any idea who wrote these macros? They may have some insight.
