Re: Patch to add new target macro: TARGET_WARN_RETURN_TYPE

Hi Craig,

: If never warning about naked functions is truly a property of
: naked functions, I think my above suggestion is probably the best
: approach for now, though in the long run naked functions should
: probably be supported by all targets (or, perhaps, tossed
: altogether). 

OK how about this version ?  I have renamed the macro to
NAKED_FUNCTION_P and updated the description in tm.texi:

Thu Mar 18 16:10:11 1999  Nick Clifton  <>

	* c-decl.c (finish_function): Check NAKED_FUNCTION_P
	(if defined) before generating a warning message about a
	non-void function not returning a value.

	* tm.texi (NAKED_FUNCTION_P): Docuemnt.

	* config/arm/arm.h (NAKED_FUNCTION_P): Define.

  You need only define this macro if the default of @samp{"-lm"} is wrong.

: I do wonder, though, whether an `asm' construct or similar that
: explicitly says "return whatever is already prepared" would be
: a better approach, e.g. `return __asm__();' or some such thing.
: I don't know enough about gcc's asm facility to be sure, but,
: in general, I can see the need for such a construct.

Or maybe just the ability to mark an asm as generating a return value,
say by using an attribute.  eg:

    asm ("ldr r0, #0" ::: "r0") __attribute__((return));
