Neither seems to be in gcc/config/i386/i386.h. I think "cc" is generic, so using it in clobber lists is not wrong. > Look at PR > gnu/32365 which seems to indicate that "cc" does, in fact, represent "eflags" > in the clobber list. That gives a hint about where to look for the clobbering conventions. From gcc/config/i386/i386.c: ! /* Set the cc_status for the results of an insn whose pattern is EXP. ! On the 80386, we assume that only test and compare insns, as well ! as SI, HI, & DI mode ADD, SUB, NEG, AND, IOR, XOR, BSF, ASHIFT, ! ASHIFTRT, and LSHIFTRT instructions set the condition codes usefully. ! Also, we assume that jumps, moves and sCOND don't affect the condition ! codes. All else clobbers the condition codes, by assumption. ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ! ! We assume that ALL integer add, minus, etc. instructions effect the ! condition codes. This MUST be consistent with i386.md. ! ! We don't record any float test or compare - the redundant test & ! compare check in final.c does not handle stack-like regs correctly. */ ! ! void ! notice_update_cc (exp) ! rtx exp; Application asms are apparently in the "All else" set. The bug in the PR could probably be fixed without updating this function by using leal instead of addl to adjust the stack.
