  2. Some changes for debugging the interface to the garbage collector

    The type inference on the Cmm code now assumes every let-binding can
    contain a pointer.  Every argument of function calls and alloc
    instructions is computed, saved on the stack.  They are loaded as soon
    as they are needed to call the function/store the values.  It seemed
    like this might fix the GC-problem, but it did not.  During garbage
    collection some strange bugs occur...

  2. Added code to store the arguments of allocs and functions potentially…

    … containing pointers on the stack
    
    Otherwise the garbage collector would not be able to replace those
    pointers by new ones when necessary.  This does not currently handle all
    cases, because my (very simple) type inference algorithm sometimes
    mistakenly thinks of variables as integers when they can actually be
    pointers.
    
    So in some cases the pointers get changed correctly during garbage
    collection but not all cases.

    This includes options for dumping intermediate data as well es the data
    structures used to represent that data.  In particular Mach and
    Linearize are replaced by a variante used for generating LLVM IR.  Any
    code used for register allocation as well as a lot of amd64-specific
    code are removed completely.

  1. Fixed a couple of bugs in the LLVM back end

    The compiler can now be used to compile itself.  The resulting binary
    however fails during garbage collection.

  1. The generated LLVM IR now contains calls to gcroot

    For that to work I added code to work around what seems to be a bug in
    LLVM occuring when using gcroot with the ocaml gc.
    
    Also a bug concerning exception handling that caused an infinite loop in
    certain when an exception was thrown in a try-with-block that was not
    caught in that block.
    
    Furthermore changed the runtime code a bit to work with the new
    exception handling.

    The generated LLVM was totally wrong for catch statements.  The with
    block was always executed, not just when using the exit statement.

    Also fixed the bug that caused floating point numbers to be printed with
    a '.' as the last character, whether there was one already or not.
    Instead the '.' is now only printed, when the fractional part is not 0.

  1. Fixed a bug in the runtime code for the AMD64 platform

    The pointer to newly allocated n (n>4) words of memory was stored in
    %r11 instead of the return register %rax.
    committed Dec 31, 2011
  2. Changed the attributes of functions in the LLVM IR

    Every function is declared as 'nounwind' because the LLVM backend is
    supposed to use setjmp/longjmp based exception handling.
    
    Additionally, to make the generated native assembly easier to read, the
    functions are declared as 'noinline', so LLVM does not inline any calls.
    This may be reverted when the main debugging phase is over.

  1. Fixed a bug that caused errors when calculating offsets

    The offsets calculated when handling a Calloc were intended to be word
    offsets but were used as byte offsets.
    
    Programs containing integer arithmetic, printing integers and references
    work as expected. However, converting float to string does not work at
    the moment while converting float to int does.

  1. Added runtime code, fixed a few bugs, restructured some code

    - added the asmrun, byterun and config directories from the OCaml
      distribution
    - fixed a bug that caused the compiled code to load data from the wrong
      address (in particular it looked for some data at an n word offset
      instead of an n byte offset)
    - moved the type definitions for the intermediate data to a separate
      module
