      Track STG live register information for use in LLVM · 4384e146
      dterei authored
      We now carry around with CmmJump statements a list of
      the STG registers that are live at that jump site.
      This is used by the LLVM backend so it can avoid
      unnesecarily passing around dead registers, improving
      perfromance. This gives us the framework to finally
      fix trac #4308.

      Implement a capi calling convention; fixes #2979 · 36f8cabe
      Ian Lynagh authored
      In GHC, this provides an easy way to call a C function via a C wrapper.
      This is important when the function is really defined by CPP.
      Requires the new CApiFFI extension.
      Not documented yet, as it's still an experimental feature at this stage.

      Refactoring: explicitly mark whether we have an info table in RawCmm · 41ca0b8d
      batterseapower authored
      I introduced this to support explicitly recording the info table label
      in RawCmm for another patch I am working on, but it turned out to lead
      to significant simplification in those parts of the compiler that
      consume RawCmm.
      Now, instead of lots of tests for null [CmmStatic] we have a simple
      test of a Maybe, and have reduced the number of guys that need to know
      how to convert entry->info labels by a TON. There are only 3 callers
      of that function now!

      Refactoring: use a structured CmmStatics type rather than [CmmStatic] · 54843b5b
      batterseapower authored
      I observed that the [CmmStatics] within CmmData uses the list in a very stylised way.
      The first item in the list is almost invariably a CmmDataLabel. Many parts of the
      compiler pattern match on this list and fail if this is not true.
      This patch makes the invariant explicit by introducing a structured type CmmStatics
      that holds the label and the list of remaining [CmmStatic].
      There is one wrinkle: the x86 backend sometimes wants to output an alignment directive just
      before the label. However, this can be easily fixed up by parameterising the native codegen
      over the type of CmmStatics (though the GenCmmTop parameterisation) and using a pair
      (Alignment, CmmStatics) there instead.
      As a result, I think we will be able to remove CmmAlign and CmmDataLabel from the CmmStatic
      data type, thus nuking a lot of code and failing pattern matches. This change will come as part
      of my next patch.

      Change the way module initialisation is done (#3252, #4417) · a52ff761
      Simon Marlow authored
      Previously the code generator generated small code fragments labelled
      with __stginit_M for each module M, and these performed whatever
      initialisation was necessary for that module and recursively invoked
      the initialisation functions for imported modules.  This appraoch had
       - FFI users had to call hs_add_root() to ensure the correct
         initialisation routines were called.  This is a non-standard,
         and ugly, API.
       - unless we were using -split-objs, the __stginit dependencies would
         entail linking the whole transitive closure of modules imported,
         whether they were actually used or not.  In an extreme case (#4387,
         #4417), a module from GHC might be imported for use in Template
         Haskell or an annotation, and that would force the whole of GHC to
         be needlessly linked into the final executable.
      So now instead we do our initialisation with C functions marked with
      __attribute__((constructor)), which are automatically invoked at
      program startup time (or DSO load-time).  The C initialisers are
      emitted into the stub.c file.  This means that every time we compile
      with -prof or -hpc, we now get a stub file, but thanks to #3687 that
      is now invisible to the user.
      There are some refactorings in the RTS (particularly for HPC) to
      handle the fact that initialisers now get run earlier than they did
      The __stginit symbols are still generated, and the hs_add_root()
      function still exists (but does nothing), for backwards compatibility.

      Force re-linking if the options have changed (#4451) · 814edf44
      Simon Marlow authored
      A common sequence of commands (at least for me) is this:
      $ ghc hello
      1 of 1] Compiling Main             ( hello.hs, hello.o )
      Linking hello ...
      $ ./hello +RTS -s
      hello: Most RTS options are disabled. Link with -rtsopts to enable them.
      $ ghc hello -rtsopts
      grr, nothing happened.  I could use -fforce-recomp, but if this was a
      large program I probably don't want to recompile it all again, so:
      $ rm hello
      removed `hello'
      $ ghc hello -rtsopts
      Linking hello ...
      $ ./hello +RTS -s
      ./hello +RTS -s
      Hello World!
                51,264 bytes allocated in the heap
                 2,904 bytes copied during GC
                43,808 bytes maximum residency (1 sample(s))
                17,632 bytes maximum slop
      With this patch, GHC notices when the options have changed and forces
      a relink, so you don't need to rm the binary or use -fforce-recomp.
      This is done by adding the pertinent stuff to the binary in a special
      section called ".debug-ghc-link-info":
      $ readelf -p .debug-ghc-link-info ./hello
      String dump of section 'ghc-linker-opts':

      And GHC itself uses the readelf command to extract it when deciding
      whether to relink.  The reason for the name ".debug-ghc-link-info" is
      that sections beginning with ".debug" are removed automatically by
      This currently only works on Linux; Windows and OS X still have the
      old behaviour.

      Merge in new code generator branch. · 889c084e
      Simon Marlow authored
      This changes the new code generator to make use of the Hoopl package
      for dataflow analysis.  Hoopl is a new boot package, and is maintained
      in a separate upstream git repository (as usual, GHC has its own
      lagging darcs mirror in http://darcs.haskell.org/packages/hoopl).
      During this merge I squashed recent history into one patch.  I tried
      to rebase, but the history had some internal conflicts of its own
      which made rebase extremely confusing, so I gave up. The history I
      squashed was:
        - Update new codegen to work with latest Hoopl
        - Add some notes on new code gen to cmm-notes
        - Enable Hoopl lag package.
        - Add SPJ note to cmm-notes
        - Improve GC calls on new code generator.
      Work in this branch was done by:
         - Milan Straka <fox@ucw.cz>
         - John Dias <dias@cs.tufts.edu>
         - David Terei <davidterei@gmail.com>
      Edward Z. Yang <ezyang@mit.edu> merged in further changes from GHC HEAD
      and fixed a few bugs.
