It isn't as in-depth as I would like but it might help anyone new to
SimonM, thanks for looking at it and making the clarification on
inlining GlobalRegs over foreign calls--much better.
SimonPJ, I am moving the part on floating point exceptions from "Cmm
Design: Observations and Areas for Potential Improvement" to a new
page: "Cmm: Implementing Exception Handling." There I will add some
extra notes on implementing floating-point exceptions in Cmm, as this
seems like an area that will require some design discussion. (From
what I can tell, a bit of this has already been set up at the Haskell
level, through Control.Exception; interfacing with Control.Exception
and design details particular to a machine would fill out the rest.)
