Custom lowering ADDE?

Why can't I custom lower ADDE operation for legal types?

Our target does not have an add with carry instruction. We check the
carry bit in status register and add 1 to the result if it is set.

Hi,

Why can't I custom lower ADDE operation for legal types?

probably because no-one needed it. Feel free to add it!

Our target does not have an add with carry instruction. We check the
carry bit in status register and add 1 to the result if it is set.

It would also be nice (if less efficient) to have a generic code
expansion of ADDE that uses booleans (i1) rather than a flag. A
variation is to eliminate flags at this level, using only booleans,
and have them be synthesized out of boolean later, eg: automatically
understanding that the carry bit can be used for the boolean. Maybe
this is crazy, I don't know! If it worked it means that your custom
expansion would no longer be useful, since it would happen
automatically if you set the operation for ADDE to expand.
