llvm: updated to 15.0.4

LLVM 15.0.4

Changes to the LLVM IR

LLVM now uses opaque pointers. This means that different pointer types like i8*, i32* or void()** are now represented as a single ptr type. See the linked document for migration instructions.
Renamed llvm.experimental.vector.extract intrinsic to llvm.vector.extract.
Renamed llvm.experimental.vector.insert intrinsic to llvm.vector.insert.
The constant expression variants of the following instructions have been removed:
Added the support for fmax and fmin in atomicrmw instruction. The comparison is expected to match the behavior of llvm.maxnum.* and llvm.minnum.* respectively.
callbr instructions no longer use blockaddress arguments for labels. Instead, label constraints starting with ! refer directly to entries in the callbr indirect destination list.

Changes to building LLVM

Omitting CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE when using a single configuration generator is now an error. You now have to pass -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=<type> in order to configure LLVM. This is done to help new users of LLVM select the correct type: since building LLVM in Debug mode is very resource intensive, we want to make sure that new users make the choice that lines up with their usage. We have also improved documentation around this setting that should help new users. You can find this documentation here.

Changes to Loop Optimizations

Loop interchange legality and cost model improvements

Changes to the AMDGPU Backend

8 and 16-bit atomic loads and stores are now supported

Changes to the ARM Backend

Added support for the Armv9-A, Armv9.1-A and Armv9.2-A architectures.
Added support for the Armv8.1-M PACBTI-M extension.
Added support for the Armv9-A, Armv9.1-A and Armv9.2-A architectures.
Added support for the Armv8.1-M PACBTI-M extension.
Removed the deprecation of ARMv8-A T32 Complex IT blocks. No deprecation warnings will be generated and -mrestrict-it is now always off by default. Previously it was on by default for Armv8 and off for all other architecture versions.
Added a pass to workaround Cortex-A57 Erratum 1742098 and Cortex-A72 Erratum 1655431. This is enabled by default when targeting either CPU.
Implemented generation of Windows SEH unwind information.
Switched the MinGW target to use SEH instead of DWARF for unwind information.
Added support for the Cortex-M85 CPU.
Added support for a new -mframe-chain=(none|aapcs|aapcs+leaf) command-line option, which controls the generation of AAPCS-compliant Frame Records.

Changes to the DirectX Backend

DirectX has been added as an experimental target. Specify -DLLVM_EXPERIMENTAL_TARGETS_TO_BUILD=DirectX in your CMake configuration to enable it. The target is not packaged in pre-built binaries.
The DirectX backend supports the dxil architecture which is based on LLVM 3.6 IR encoded as bitcode and is the format used for DirectX GPU Shader programs.

Changes to the PowerPC Backend

Common PowerPC improvements: * Add a new post instruction selection pass to generate CTR loops. * Add SSE4 and BMI compatible intrinsics implementation. * Supported 16-byte lock free atomics on PowerPC8 and up. * Supported atomic load/store for pointer types. * Supported stack size larger than 2G * Add __builtin_min/__builtin_max/__abs builtins. * Code generation improvements for splat load/vector shuffle/mulli, etc. * Emit VSX instructions for vector loads and stores regardless of alignment. * The mcpu=future has its own ISA now (FutureISA). * Added the ppc-set-dscr option to set the Data Stream Control Register (DSCR). * Bug fixes.

AIX improvements: * Supported 64 bit XCOFF for integrated-as path. * Supported X86-compatible vector intrinsics. * Program code csect default alignment now is 32-byte. * Supported auxiliary header in integrated-as path. * Improved alias symbol handling.

Changes to the RISC-V Backend

A RISCVRedundantCopyElimination pass was added to remove unnecessary zero copies.
A RISC-V specific CodeGenPrepare pass was added.
The machine outliner was enabled by default for RISC-V at -Oz. Additionally, the newly introduced RISCVMakeCompressible pass will make modify instructions prior to emission at -Oz in order to increase opportunities for the compression with the RISC-V C extension.
Various bug fixes and improvements to code generation for the RISC-V vector extensions.
Various improvements were made to RISC-V specific optimisation passes such as RISCVSExtWRemoval and RISCVMergeBaseOffset.
llc now computes the target ABI based on the target architecture using the same logic as Clang if not explicit ABI is given.
generic is now recognized as a valid CPU name and is mapped to generic-rv32 or generic-rv64 depending on the target triple.
Support for the experimental Zvfh extension was added, enabling half-precision floating point in vectors.
Support for the Zihintpause (Pause Hint) extension.
Assembler and disassembler support for the Zfinx and Zdinx (float / double in integer register) extensions.
Assembler and disassembler support for the Zicbom, Zicboz, and Zicbop cache management operation extensions.
Support for the Zmmul extension (a subextension of the M extension, adding multiplication instructions only).
Assembler and disassembler support for the hypervisor extension and for the Sinval supervisor memory-management extension.

Changes to the X86 Backend

Support half type on SSE2 and above targets following X86 psABI.
Support rdpru instruction on Zen2 and above targets.
During this release, half type has an ABI breaking change to provide the support for the ABI of _Float16 type on SSE2 and above following X86 psABI. (D107082)

The change may affect the current use of half includes (but is not limited to):

Frontends generating half type in function passing and/or returning arguments.
Downstream runtimes providing any half conversion builtins assuming the old ABI.
Projects built with LLVM 15.0 but using early versions of compiler-rt.
When you find failures with half type, check the calling conversion of the code and switch it to the new ABI.

Changes to the LLVM tools

(Experimental) llvm-symbolizer now has --filter-markup to filter Symbolizer Markup into human-readable form.
llvm-objcopy has removed support for the legacy zlib-gnu format.
llvm-objcopy now allows --set-section-flags src=... --rename-section src=tst. --add-section=.foo1=... --rename-section=.foo1=.foo2 now adds .foo1 instead of .foo2.
New features supported on AIX for llvm-ar:
AIX big-format archive write operation (D123949)
A new object mode option, -X , to specify the type of object file llvm-ar should operate upon (D127864)
Read global symbols of AIX big archive (D124865)
New options supported for llvm-nm:
-X, to specify the type of object file that llvm-nm should examine (D118193)
--export-symbols, to create a list of symbols to export (D112735)
The LLVM gold plugin now ignores bitcode from the .llvmbc section of ELF files when doing LTO.
llvm-objcopy now supports 32 bit XCOFF.
llvm-objdump: improved assembly printing for XCOFF.
llc now parses code-model attribute from input file.

Changes to LLDB

The emory regioncommand now has a alloption to list all memory regions (including unmapped ranges). This is the equivalent of using address 0 then repeating the command until all regions have been listed.
Added show-tagsoption to the emory findcommand. This is off by default. When enabled, if the target value is found in tagged memory, the tags for that memory will be shown inline with the memory contents.
Various memory related parts of LLDB have been updated to handle non-address bits (such as AArch64 pointer signatures):
emory read emory writeand emory findcan now be used with addresses with non-address bits.
All the read and write memory methods on SBProccess and SBTarget can be used with addreses with non-address bits.
When printing a pointer expression, LLDB can now dereference the result even if it has non-address bits.
The memory cache now ignores non-address bits when looking up memory locations. This prevents us reading locations multiple times, or not writing out new values if the addresses have different non-address bits.
LLDB now supports reading memory tags from AArch64 Linux core files.
LLDB now supports the gnu debuglink section for reading debug information from a separate file on Windows
LLDB now allows selecting the C++ ABI to use on Windows (between Itanium, used for MingW, and MSVC) via the setting. In Windows builds of LLDB, this defaults to the style used for LLVM default target.

Other Changes

The code for the LLVM Visual Studio integration has been removed. This had been obsolete and abandoned since Visual Studio started including an integration by default in 2019.
Added the unwinder, personality, and helper functions for exception handling on AIX. (D100132) (D100504)
PGO on AIX: A new implementation that requires linker support (__start_SECTION/__stop_SECTION symbols) available on AIX 7.2 TL5 SP4 and AIX 7.3 TL0 SP2.

llvm: update llvm and friends to 13.0.0

Tested on NetBSD-current and 9.1/amd64.

Also update packages tightly coupled to llvm, if new versions are

Mark creduce, include-what-you-use, and zig broken (waiting for a
new release).


Non-comprehensive list of changes in this release

    Windows Control-flow Enforcement Technology: the -ehcontguard
    option now emits valid unwind entrypoints which are validated
    when the context is being set during exception handling.

    Flang is now included in the binary packages released by LLVM.

    The debuginfo-test project has been renamed cross-project-tests
    and is now intended for testing components from multiple
    projects, not just debug information. The new ross-project-tests    name replaces ebuginfo-testin LLVM_ENABLE_PROJECTS, and a
    new check-cross-project-tests target has been added for running
    all tests in the project. The pre-existing check-debuginfo-
    test target remains for running just the debug information
    tests. (D95339 and D96513)

Changes to the LLVM IR

    The inalloca attribute now has a mandatory type field, similar
    to byval and sret.

    The opaque pointer type ptr has been introduced. It is still
    in the process of being worked on and should not be used yet.

    Using the legacy pass manager for the optimization pipeline is
    deprecated and will be removed after LLVM 14. In the meantime,
    only minimal effort will be made to maintain the legacy pass
    manager for the optimization pipeline.

Changes to building LLVM

    The build system now supports building multiple distributions,
    so that you can e.g. have one distribution containing just
    tools and another for libraries (to enable development). See
    Multi-distribution configurations for details.

Changes to the AArch64 Backend

    Introduced assembly support for Armv9-A Realm Management
    Extension (RME) and Scalable Matrix Extension (SME).

    Produce proper cross-section relative relocations on COFF

    Fixed the calling convention on Windows for variadic functions
    involving floats in the fixed arguments

Changes to the ARM Backend

    Produce proper cross-section relative relocations on COFF

Changes to the Hexagon Target

    The Hexagon target now supports V68/HVX ISA.

Changes to the C API

    The C API functions LLVMGetAlignment and LLVMSetAlignment now
    allow changing alignment on atomicrmw and cmpxchg instructions

    A new entry LLVMDIArgListMetadataKind was added to the
    LLVMMetadataKind enum, representing DIArgLists (D88175)

    Type attributes have been added to LLVM-C, introducing
    LLVMCreateTypeAttribute, LLVMGetTypeAttributeValue and
    LLVMIsTypeAttribute. (D977763

    The LTO_API_VERSION was bumped to 28, introducing a new function
    lto_set_debug_options for parsing LTO debug options (D92611)

    LLVMJITTargetSymbolFlags was renamed to LLVMJITSymbolTargetFlags

    The C API received support for creating custom ORCv2
    MaterializationUnits and APIs to retrieve an LLJIT instance
    linking layers. An ABI breaking change for LLVMOrcAbsoluteSymbols
    was introduced to make it consistent with

    The C API received support for adding ORCv2 object buffers
    directly to an object layer.

    A breaking change to LLVMGetInlineAsm was introduced, adding
    a ninth argument LLVMBool CanThrow (D95745)

    The C API received support for calling into the new pass manager.

    The C API function LLVMIntrinsicCopyOverloadedName has been
    deprecated. Please migrate to LLVMIntrinsicCopyOverloadedName2
    which takes an extra module argument and which also handles
    unnamed types. (D99173)

    The C API received support for dumping objects from ORCv2

    A breaking change to LLVMOrcObjectTransformLayerTransformFunction
    was introduced, changing the order of the function pointer
    arguments. (rG8962c68ad007a525f9daa987c99eda57e0d0069a)

    The C API received support for accessing utilities from the
    LLJIT IRTransformLayer and ThreadSafeModule classes. (D103855)

    The C API received support for creating lazy-export
    MaterializationUnits (D104672)

    The C API function LLVMPassBuilderOptionsSetCoroutines was
    removed because couroutine passes have been enabled by default.

    comdat noduplicates was renamed to comdat nodeduplicate and as
    a result, LLVMNoDuplicatesComdatSelectionKind was renamed to
    LLVMNoDeduplicateComdatSelectionKind. (D106319)

Changes to the FastISel infrastructure

    FastISel no longer tracks killed registers, and instead leaves
    this to the register allocator. This means that hasTrivialKill()
    is removed, as well as the OpNIsKill parameters to the fastEmit_*()
    family of functions.

Changes to the LLVM tools

    The options --build-id-link-{dir,input,output} have been deleted.

    Support for in-order processors has been added to llvm-mca.

    llvm-objdump supports -M {att,intel} now. --x86-asm-syntax is
    a deprecated internal option which will be removed in LLVM
    14.0.0. (D101695)

    The llvm-readobj short aliases -s (previously --sections) and
    -t (previously --syms) have been changed to --syms and
    --section-details respectively, to match llvm-readelf. (D105055)

    The llvm-nm short aliases -M (--print-armap), -U (--defined-only),
    and -W (--no-weak) are now deprecated. Use the long form versions
    instead. The alias --just-symbol-name is now deprecated in
    favor of --format=just-symbols and -j. (D105330)

    In lli the default JIT engine switched from MCJIT (-jit-kind=mcjit)
    to ORC (-jit-kind=orc). (D98931)

    llvm-rc got support for invoking Clang to preprocess its input.

    llvm-rc got a GNU windres compatible frontend, llvm-windres.

    llvm-ml has improved compatibility with MS ml.exe, managing to
    assemble more asm files.

Changes to LLDB

    LLDB executable is now included in pre-built LLVM binaries.

    LLDB now includes full featured support for AArch64 SVE register

    LLDB now supports AArch64 Pointer Authentication, allowing
    stack unwind with signed return address.

    LLDB now supports debugging programs on AArch64 Linux that use
    memory tagging (MTE).

    Added memory tag read and memory tag write commands.

    The memory region command will note when a region has memory
    tagging enabled.

    Synchronous and asynchronous tag faults are recognised.

    Synchronous tag faults have memory tag annotations in addition
    to the usual fault address.

ELF Improvements
Glob pattern, which you can use in linker scripts or version scripts, now supports ` and `[!. Except character classes
New elf32btsmipn32_fbsd and elf32ltsmipn32_fbsd emulations are supported.
Relax MIPS jalr and jr instructions marked by the R_MIPS_JALR relocation.
For certain ndefined symbolerrors, a definition with a close spelling will be suggested.
extern "C" is suggested if an undefined reference is mangled(unmangled) while there is a likely unmangled(mangled) definition.
New -z noseparate-code, -z separate-code and -z separate-loadable-segments. -z noseparate-code is the default, which can reduce sizes of linked binaries by up to 3 times maxpagesize.
-z force-bti and -z pac-plt are added for AArch64 Branch Target Identification and Pointer Authentication.
--fix-cortex-a8 is added to fix erratum 657417.
-z force-ibt and -z shstk are added for Intel Control-flow Enforcement Technology.
PT_GNU_PROPERTY is added to help loaders locate the section. It may be used by a future Linux kernel.
For --compress-debug-sections=zlib, -O0 and -O1 enable compression level 1 while -O2 enables compression level 6. -O1
Range extension thunks with addends are implemented for AArch64, PowerPC32 and PowerPC64.
R_RISCV_ALIGN will be errored because linker relaxation for RISC-V is not supported. Pass -mno-relax to disable R_RISCV_ALIGN.
The ARM port will no longer insert interworking thunks for non STT_FUNC symbols.
The quality of PowerPC32 port has been greatly improved
The PowerPC64 port supports non-preemptible IFUNC.
lld creates a RO PT_LOAD and a RX PT_LOAD without a linker script. lld creates a unified RX PT_LOAD with a linker script. A future release will eliminate this difference and use a RO PT_LOAD and a RX PT_LOAD by default. The linker script case will require --no-rosegment to restore the current behavior.
GNU style compressed debug sections .zdebug

Breaking changes
-Ttext-segment is no longer supported. Its meaning was different from GNU ld and could cause subtle bugs.

MinGW Improvements
Allow using custom .edata sections from input object files
Don implicitly create import libraries unless requested
Support merging multiple resource object files
Demangle itanium symbol names in warnings/error messages
Print source locations for undefined references and duplicate symbols, if possible
Look for more filename patterns when resolving -l options
Don error out on duplicate absolute symbols with the same value

WebAssembly Improvements
__data_end and __heap_base are no longer exported by default, as it best to keep them internal when possible. They can be explicitly exported with xport=__data_end and xport=__heap_base, respectively.
wasm-ld now elides .bss sections when the memory is not imported

lld: updated to 9.0.0

Non-comprehensive list of changes in this release

ELF Improvements

ld.lld now has typo suggestions for flags: $ ld.lld --call-shared now prints unknown argument '--call-shared', did you mean '--call_shared'.

--allow-shlib-undefined and --no-allow-shlib-undefined options are added. --no-allow-shlib-undefined is the default for executables.

-nmagic and -omagic options are fully supported.

Segment layout has changed. PT_GNU_RELRO, which was previously placed in the middle of readable/writable PT_LOAD segments, is now placed at the beginning of them. This change permits lld-produced ELF files to be read correctly by GNU strip older than 2.31, which has a bug to discard a PT_GNU_RELRO in the former layout.

-z common-page-size is supported.

Diagnostics messages have improved. A new flag --vs-diagnostics alters the format of diagnostic output to enable source hyperlinks in Microsoft Visual Studio IDE.

Linker script compatibility with GNU BFD linker has generally improved.

The clang --dependent-library form of autolinking is supported.

This feature is added to implement the Windows-style autolinking for Unix. On Unix, in order to use a library, you usually have to include a header file provided by the library and then explicitly link the library with the linker -l option. On Windows, header files usually contain pragmas that list needed libraries. Compilers copy that information to object files, so that linkers can automatically link needed libraries. --dependent-library is added for implementing that Windows semantics on Unix.

AArch64 BTI and PAC are supported.

lld now supports replacing JAL with JALX instructions in case of MIPS-microMIPS cross-mode jumps.

lld now creates LA25 thunks for MIPS R6 code.

Put MIPS-specific .reginfo, .MIPS.options, and .MIPS.abiflags sections into corresponding PT_MIPS_REGINFO, PT_MIPS_OPTIONS, and PT_MIPS_ABIFLAGS segments.

The quality of RISC-V and PowerPC ports have greatly improved. Many applications can now be linked by lld. PowerPC64 is now almost production ready.

The Linux kernel for arm32_7, arm64, ppc64le and x86_64 can now be linked by lld.

x86-64 TLSDESC is supported.

DF_STATIC_TLS flag is set for i386 and x86-64 when needed.

The experimental partitioning feature is added to allow a program to be split into multiple pieces.

The feature allows you to semi-automatically split a single program into multiple ELF files called artitions Since all partitions share the same memory address space and don use PLT/GOT, split programs run as fast as regular programs.

With the mechanism, you can start a program only with a ainpartition and load remaining partitions on-demand. For example, you can split a web browser into a main partition and a PDF reader sub-partition and load the PDF reader partition only when a user tries to open a PDF file.

See the documentation for more information.

If is given as an output filename, lld writes the final result to the standard output. Previously, it created a file in the current directory.

-z ifunc-noplt option is added to reduce IFunc function call overhead in a freestanding environment such as the OS kernel.

Functions resolved by the IFunc mechanism are usually dispatched via PLT and thus slower than regular functions because of the cost of indirection. With -z ifunc-noplt, you can eliminate it by doing text relocations at load-time. You need a special loader to utilize this feature. This feature is added for the FreeBSD kernel but can be used by any operating systems.

--undefined-glob option is added. The new option is an extension to --undefined to take a glob pattern instead of a single symbol name.

COFF Improvements

Like the ELF driver, lld-link now has typo suggestions for flags.
lld-link now correctly reports duplicate symbol errors for object files that were compiled with /Gy.
lld-link now correctly reports duplicate symbol errors when several resource (.res) input files define resources with the same type, name and language. This can be demoted to a warning using /force:multipleres.
lld-link now rejects more than one resource object input files, matching link.exe. Previously, lld-link would silently ignore all but one. If you hit this: Don pass resource object files to the linker, instead pass res files to the linker directly. Don put resource files in static libraries, pass them on the command line.
Having more than two /natvis: now works correctly; it used to not work for larger binaries before.
Undefined symbols are now printed only in demangled form. Pass /demangle:no to see raw symbol names instead.
Several speed and memory usage improvements.
lld-link now supports resource object files created by GNU windres and MS cvtres, not only llvm-cvtres.
The generated thunks for delayimports now share the majority of code among thunks, significantly reducing the overhead of using delayimport.
IMAGE_REL_ARM{,64}_REL32 relocations are supported.
Range extension thunks for AArch64 are now supported, so lld can create large executables for Windows/ARM64.
The following flags have been added: /functionpadmin

WebAssembly Improvements

Imports from custom module names are supported.
Symbols that are in llvm.used are now exported by default.
Initial support for PIC and dynamic linking has landed.
wasm-ld now add __start_/__stop_ symbols for data sections.
wasm-ld now doesn report an error on archives without a symbol index.
The following flags have been added: --emit-relocs

MinGW Improvements

lld now correctly links crtend.o as the last object file, handling terminators for the sections such as .eh_frame properly, fixing DWARF exception handling with libgcc and gcc crtend.o.
lld now also handles DWARF unwind info generated by GCC, when linking with libgcc.
PDB output can be requested without manually specifying the PDB file name, with the new option -pdb= with an empty value to the option. (The old existing syntax -pdb <filename> was more cumbersome to use with an empty parameter value.)
--no-insert-timestamp option is added as an alias to /timestamp:0.
Many more GNU ld options are now supported, which e.g. allows the lld MinGW frontend to be called by GCC.
The following options are added: --exclude-all-symbols, --appcontainer, --undefined

lld 8.0.0:

Non-comprehensive list of changes in this release

ELF Improvements
* lld now supports RISC-V. (r339364)
* Default image base address has changed from 65536 to 2 MiB for i386 and 4 MiB for AArch64 to make lld-generated executables work better with automatic superpage promotion. FreeBSD can promote contiguous non-superpages to a superpage if they are aligned to the superpage size. (r342746)
* lld now attempts to place a .note segment in the first page of a generated file, so that you can find some important information ( in particular) in a core file even if a core file is truncated by ulimit. (r349524)
* lld now reports an error if _GLOBAL_OFFSET_TABLE_ symbol is defined by an input object file, as the symbol is supposed to be synthesized by the linker. (r347854)
* lld/Hexagon can now link Linux kernel and musl libc for Qualcomm Hexagon ISA.
* Initial MSP430 ISA support has landed.
* lld now uses the sigrie instruction as a trap instruction for MIPS targets.
* lld now creates a TLS segment for AArch64 with a slightly larger alignment requirement, so that the loader makes a few bytes room before each TLS segment at runtime. The aim of this change is to make room to accomodate nonstandard Android TLS slots while keeping the compatibility with the standard AArch64 ABI. (r350681)
* The following flags have been added: --call-graph-profile, --no-call-graph-profile, --warn-ifunc-textrel, -z interpose, -z global, -z nodefaultlib

COFF Improvements
* PDB GUID is set to hash of PDB contents instead to a random byte sequence for build reproducibility.
* /pdbsourcepath: is now also used to make "cwd", "exe", "pdb" in the env block of PDB outputs absolute if they are relative, and to make paths to obj files referenced in PDB outputs absolute if they are relative. Together with the previous item, this makes it possible to generate executables and PDBs that are fully deterministic and independent of the absolute path to the build directory, so that different machines building the same code in different directories can produce exactly the same output.
* The following flags have been added: /force:multiple
* lld now can link against import libraries produced by GNU tools.
* lld can create thunks for ARM and ARM64, to allow linking larger images (over 16 MB for ARM and over 128 MB for ARM64)
* Several speed and memory usage improvements.
* lld now creates debug info for typedefs.
* lld can now link obj files produced by cl.exe /Z7 /Yc.
* lld now understands %_PDB% and %_EXT% in /pdbaltpath:.
* Undefined symbols are now printed in demangled form in addition to raw form.

MinGW Improvements
* lld can now automatically import data variables from DLLs without the use of the dllimport attribute.
* lld can now use existing normal MinGW sysroots with import libraries and CRT startup object files for GNU binutils. lld can handle most object files produced by GCC, and thus works as a drop-in replacement for ld.bfd in such environments. (There are known issues with linking crtend.o from GCC in setups with DWARF exceptions though, where object files are linked in a different order than with GNU ld, inserting a DWARF exception table terminator too early.)
* lld now supports COFF embedded directives for linking to nondefault libraries, just like for the normal COFF target.
* Actually generate a codeview build id signature, even if not creating a PDB. Previously, the --build-id option did not actually generate a build id unless --pdb was specified.

WebAssembly Improvements
* Add initial support for creating shared libraries (-shared). Note: The shared library format is still under active development and may undergo significant changes in future versions. See:

devel/lld: import lld-7.0.1

LLD is a linker from the LLVM project that is a drop-in replacement for system
linkers and runs much faster than them. It also provides features that are
useful for toolchain developers.
