17.10.13 Permitting tail calls
True if it is ok to do sibling call optimization for the specified call expression exp. decl will be the called function, or
NULLif this is an indirect call.
It is not uncommon for limitations of calling conventions to prevent tail calls to functions outside the current unit of translation, or during PIC compilation. The hook is used to enforce these restrictions, as the
sibcallmd pattern can not fail, or fall over to a “normal” call. The criteria for successful sibling call optimization may vary greatly between different architectures.
Add any hard registers to regs that are live on entry to the function. This hook only needs to be defined to provide registers that cannot be found by examination of FUNCTION_ARG_REGNO_P, the callee saved registers, STATIC_CHAIN_INCOMING_REGNUM, STATIC_CHAIN_REGNUM, TARGET_STRUCT_VALUE_RTX, FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM, EH_USES, FRAME_POINTER_REGNUM, ARG_POINTER_REGNUM, and the PIC_OFFSET_TABLE_REGNUM.
