THe double-indirect case that's being talked about here is well out of the mainstream and not a feature of anything LRA has targetted to date. So I'm not surprised it's not working. My suggestion would be to ignore the double-indirect aspect of the architecture right now, get the port working, then come back and try to make double-indirect addressing modes work. This sounds like sensible advice. However I wonder if this issue is related to the other major outstanding problem I have, viz: the large number of test failures which report "Unable to find a register to spill" - So far, nobody has been able to explain how to solve that issue and even the people who appear to be more knowlegeable have expressed suprise that it is even happening at all.
Even if it should turn out not to be related, the message I've been receiving in this thread is lra should not be expected to work for non "mainstream" backends. So perhaps there is another, yet to be discovered, restriction which prevents my backend from ever working? On the other hand, given my lack of experience with gcc, it could be that lra is working perfectly, and I have simply done something incorrectly. But the uncertainty voiced in this thread means that it is hard to be sure that I'm not trying to do something which is currently unsupported. J' -- Avoid eavesdropping. Send strong encrypted email.
