When the compiler emits assembly code in gcc, there is no #APP/#NOAPP
In my case, I'm creating inline assembly IR as part of the compilation process (not user supplied).
These are for compiler generated stubs.
So I'm seeing these #APP,#NOAPP wrappers which are meant for user inline assembly.
Since I'm generating a lot of inline assembly and then each line is enclosed by this pair, it makes it hard to read the stubs and gcc generated stubs do not have them. Yes, I could buffer them and generate one long string but still that long string will have this wrapper and that's already more work .
It's not hard for me to disable the wrappers by extending our Mips derived version of MCAsmInfo but it seems like this should be solved more generally for everyone. I'm generating a whole stub and not misc. asm code so I can do this easily but in other cases it would not be possible if things were inserted in the middle of other code.
One way would be to add a field to InlineAsm which says whether the compiler or user has requested the inline asm.
Then we need to similarly do something different when the IR is lowered to preserve this
