These function attributes are supported by the ARC back end:
Use this attribute to indicate that the specified function is an interrupt handler. The compiler generates function entry and exit sequences suitable for use in an interrupt handler when this attribute is present.
On the ARC, you must specify the kind of interrupt to be handled in a parameter to the interrupt attribute like this:
void f () __attribute__ ((interrupt ("ilink1")));
Permissible values for this parameter are:
ilink2 for ARCv1 architecture, and
firq for ARCv2 architecture.
These attributes specify how a particular function is called.
These attributes override the
-mmedium-calls (see ARC Options)
command-line switches and
#pragma long_calls settings.
For ARC, a function marked with the
long_call attribute is
always called using register-indirect jump-and-link instructions,
thereby enabling the called function to be placed anywhere within the
32-bit address space. A function marked with the
attribute will always be close enough to be called with an unconditional
branch-and-link instruction, which has a 25-bit offset from
the call site. A function marked with the
attribute will always be close enough to be called with a conditional
branch-and-link instruction, which has a 21-bit offset from
the call site.
Forces a particular function to be called using
jli instruction makes use of a table stored
.jlitab section, which holds the location of the functions
which are addressed using this instruction.
Identical like the above one, but the location of the function in the
jli table is known and given as an attribute parameter.
This attribute allows one to mark secure-code functions that are
callable from normal mode. The location of the secure call function
sjli table needs to be passed as argument.
This attribute allows the compiler to construct the requisite function
declaration, while allowing the body of the function to be assembly
code. The specified function will not have prologue/epilogue
sequences generated by the compiler. Only basic
can safely be included in naked functions (see Basic Asm). While
asm or a mixture of basic
asm and C code
may appear to work, they cannot be depended upon to work reliably and
are not supported.
