GNU lightning is a library to aid in making portable programs
that compile assembly code at run time.


Download release:

  2.1.1 adds support for jit_allocar for runtime alloca, contrary to
jit_allocai that provides a static offset allocation.
  2.1.1 also adds support for jit_va_start, jit_va_arg, jit_va_arg_d
and jit_va_end, that implements C compatible varargs functions.
  Note: alpha, hppa, mips (n32 abi), ppc (Darwin abi) and sparc ports
are no longer supported due to lack of a test environment.


 o Implement cache flush.
 o Do not use a dangling pointer for double to integer copy.

 o Correct issues in load and store in the x32 abi.

 o Correct Fibonacci number generation examples.
 o Correct wrong jit_movr simplification.
 o Correct wrong live register information for some complex patterns.
 o Adapt for binutils 2.29.
