[PATCH 0/1] Only pass the minimum number of syscall arguments (RISC-V)

Georg Sauthoff-2
As is, the RISC-V syscall code unconditionally sets all possible syscall
arguments even if the syscall requires fewer.

For example, the instruction sequence for a exit syscall looked like
this:

    li    a0, 1   # in ther caller of exit()
    # ...         # in newlib:
    li    a1, 0   # unused arguments
    li    a2, 0
    li    a3, 0
    li    a4, 0
    li    a5, 0
    li    a7, 93  # exit syscall number

(i.e. the binary contains then 5 superfluous instructions for this
one argument syscall)

This patch changes the RISC-V syscall code such that only the required
syscall argument registers are set.

Georg Sauthoff (1):
  Only pass the minimum number of syscall arguments

[PATCH 1/1] Only pass the minimum number of syscall arguments

Georg Sauthoff-2
Previously, __internal_syscall() compiled into asm-code that unconditionally
sets the syscall argument registers a0 to a5.

For example, the instruction sequence for a exit syscall looked like
this:

    li    a0, 1   # in ther caller of exit()
    # ...         # in newlib:
    li    a1, 0   # unused arguments
    li    a2, 0
    li    a3, 0
    li    a4, 0
    li    a5, 0
    li    a7, 93  # exit syscall number

(i.e. the binary contains then 5 superfluous instructions for this
one argument syscall)

This commit changes the RISC-V syscall code such that only the required
syscall argument registers are set.

GCC detects that argc is known at compile time and thus evaluates all the
if-statements where argc is used at compile time (tested with -O2 and -Os).

Re: [PATCH 1/1] Only pass the minimum number of syscall arguments

Kito Cheng-2
Hi Georg:

LGTM, great job, it reduce the code size for libgloss.

Tested rv32gc/rv64gc on qemu.

Thanks :)
