A quick look at gas/config/tc-m68k.c reveals fp is hardly

m68k-amigaos modifies GAS and binds %fp to %a5, thus your M68K_REGNAME
macro would work.
Ok. I suppose any other target that redefines %fp would
need such thing.
#if FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM == 14
/* Return a register name by index, handling fp nicely. */
# define M68K_REGNAME(r) ( \
((r) == FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM && frame_pointer_needed) ? \
M68K_FP_REG_NAME : reg_names[(r)])
/* GAS and possibly other assemblers hard-code fp to a6. */
# define M68K_REGNAME(r) reg_names[(r)]
This does only work if FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM is defined correctly
before, eg. in config.gcc. However, since FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM is
a compile-time constant you could move the check into the macro
definition to get the same result :-)
No, it would work even if FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM is defined later,
for the same reason Andreas' earlier patch works: the C preprocessor
expands nested macros lazily, not at definition time.
