powerpc-eabi subroutine calls
Tue Oct 30 09:15:00 GMT 2001
to make gcc generate a "far" subroutine call, an attribute must be added
to the function declaration:
void foo (int bar1, char bar2) __attribute__ ((longcall));
This has to be done for any function which might be called from a location
more than 8MB away.
The generated assembler code looks like this:
li 4,0 # 2nd argument
li 3,100 # 1st argument
BTW, this is clearly documented in "Using and Porting the GNU Compiler
Collection", chap. 4.23 "Declaring Atttibutes of Functions".
Thanks to Franz Fischer, who pointed that out to me in a private mail.
