Hello to everybody
I'm using JikesRVM for my thesis and I'm trying to make some
modifications to the optimized compiler. I have to make use of
VM_Magic methods for inserting jumps to instructions (CodeArray) I
manually provide. Thanks to assertion failures, I have noticed that
the methods "dynamicBridgeTo" and "setNextInstructionAddress" are not
being replaced by the needed magic assembly.
In OPT_GenerateMagic.java (or OPT_GenerateMachineSpecificMagic.java)
these two cases are not handled at all, this is the place where the
implementation should be. Do I need to fill the gap and provide an
implementation on my own, or is there any other way of ultimately
issuing a JMP?
Any hint or suggestion is highly appreciated.
