Error including or

I’m developing a custom backend and I got to some error while including files generated by tablegen, for example:

  •, included in TargetRegisterInfo.cpp/h
  •, included in TargetDAGToDAGISel.cpp/h

I checked all the possible macros before the include, but seems fine (I made a comparison with other backend like RISCV).

This is the type of error I got including

/Users/lorenzostigliano/Desktop/LLVM_13_MBLAZE/llvm/build/lib/Target/MBLAZE/ error: static_cast from 'const llvm::TargetFrameLowering *' to 'const llvm::MBLAZEFrameLowering *', which are not related by inheritance, is not allowed

make[1]: *** [lib/Target/MBLAZE/CMakeFiles/LLVMMBLAZECodeGen.dir/all] Error 2

and this is the one that I got including

Anyone have some suggestion on how to handle the implementation of files made by tablegen?

Ad 1. I do not see that you have even a declaration or a stub of MBLAZEFrameLowering class. You need to provide that.

Ad 2. According to your definition in the name of the GPR register class is GPRRCRegClass if I am not mistaken.

Update Sorry, I was wrong. The name of the register class is correct. But you do not include MBLAZEReginsterInfo.h in MBLAZEInstrInfo.h/.cpp, so this class is unknown to the compiler.


Tank you! Is my first backend, so I’m not super sure about how to develop correctly this thing. I read some books/guide, but seems like there are so many things to know that does not exists a “zero to hero guide” about it.
