Yes, x86 adds many special logic. You can see the actual diff, which involves many “only for x86” logic involving weird stack push/pop. And it is not well-abstracted. As a result, changes are in all of our JIT tiers (except for FTL b/c we are not supporting x86 in FTL) :( https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/249880/webkit <https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/249880/webkit> YarrJIT has HAVE_INITIAL_START_REG ifdef and separate logic, which is only for x86. All the other platforms including ARMv7 do not require this. If this architecture has enough # of registers (like, MIPS), keeping it would be much easier. But it only has very few registers and this makes x86 special compared to the other 32bit architectures. I also note that x86 JIT is not working for at least 3 months. I found that x86 callee-save-register definition is broken at some point. : https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/249830/webkit <https://trac.webkit.org/changeset/249830/webkit> > > This already happened during the weekend, so I guess this can count as an > after the fact tacit agreement.
