Re: [PATCH] support to flip modes in sh mode-switching

I can't review your patch, but it seems to me the patch does
the right thing.  I have a few comments, though.

The patch should be tested with bootstrap and the regression test
also on the primary target including a bootstrappable x86 target
at least, since it touches the generic and the i386 specific files.

Also any gcc patch requires its ChangeLog entry and it looks your
patch has some minor problems with gcc coding standards.

Also each sentence in comments should end with a period.

It looks there are another missing spaces between function-name
and open paren.

This change of EMIT_MODE_SET requires the corresponding change
of the description of EMIT_MODE_SET in gcc/doc/tm.texi.  About
documentation changes, please check

The first sentence should start with a capital letter and two spaces
are required between the period and the next sentence.  The individual
new function requires a comment especially when that function is

> +set_edge_modes_internal(basic_block bb, sbitmap visited, struct bb_info *info, int j, int no_mode)

Missing space before "(".  Also the line should be wrapped so it
is less than ~75 characters on a line.  It looks there are another
lines beyond this limit.
