inline assembly matching error

I’m trying to add support for inline assembly and I keep getting this error:

“:1:2: error: invalid instruction”

which is due to the fact that MatchInstructionImpl() returns Match_MnemonicFail.
This function is tablegen’ed in XXXGenAsmMatcher.inc and for some reason it can’t find JAL even though I can clearly see it in both MatchTable0[] and MnemonicTable

The input was

int main ()

{

asm volatile (“JAL”);

return 0;

}

If I go to JAL’s definition in XXXInstrInfo.td and change its assembly string from “JAL” to “jal”, it works.

How can I keep using uppercase characters? It seems to be a minor setting somewhere but can’t find it.

Thanks.

It's not a setting, I'm afraid. LLVM can assemble both upper & lower
case instructions (as long as you're careful), but the underlying
definition has to be in lower-case. The most obvious example of this
is lib/MC/MCParser/AsmParser.cpp:2182 (in function parseStatement)
where the mnemonic always gets "lower" called on it before it's handed
off to the target.

Cheers.

I’d like to know how this enum is generated

MatchClassKind {

InvalidMatchClass = 0,

OptionalMatchClass = 1,

MCK__MINUS_1, // ‘-1’

MCK_0, // ‘0’

MCK_1, // ‘1’

MCK_R0, // ‘R0’

MCK_LAST_TOKEN = MCK_R0,

MCK_CRegs, // register class ‘CRegs’

MCK_NRegs, // register class ‘NRegs’

MCK_ORegs, // register class ‘ORegs’

MCK_RA, // register class ‘RA’

MCK_SRegs, // register class ‘SRegs’

MCK_ZRegs, // register class ‘ZRegs’

MCK_CPURegs, // register class ‘CPURegs’

MCK_LAST_REGISTER = MCK_CPURegs,

MCK_Imm, // user defined class ‘ImmAsmOperand’

NumMatchClassKinds

};

I do not recognize register class RA. I do have a register named RA but it’s not a class.

Here is an excerpt from my XXXRegisterInfo.td with all the reg classes definitions

def CPURegs : RegisterClass< …

def CRegs : RegisterClass<…

def ORegs : RegisterClass<…

def NRegs : RegisterClass<…

def ZRegs : RegisterClass<…

def SRegs : RegisterClass<…

Where does MCK_RA come from?

Thanks.
