Porting GCC to the AMD64 architecture
SuSE CR, s.r.o.
In this paper we describe our experience from porting GCC to the AMD64
architecture and the AMD Opteron processor. Our target was a high quality
port producing fast code. We discuss decisions taken while
designing the Application Binary Interface (ABI) and effect of various code
optimizations we implemented. We also present several open issues we would like
to solve in the future.
