Compiler/BEAGLEBN: Minor code generation issue with PRU compiler

Part Number: BEAGLEBN

Tool/software: TI C/C++ Compiler


I noticed a code generation inconsistency with TI PRU compiler v2.2.1 for a specific corner case.

struct A { };

struct A a;

unsigned test_add(unsigned a, struct A s, unsigned b)
        return a + b;

Produces, as expected, references to R14 and R15:

        ADD       r14, r14, r15         ; [ALU_PRU] |32| a,b
        JMP       r3.w2                 ; [ALU_PRU] 

But when calling such a function:

extern unsigned test_add2(unsigned a, struct A s, unsigned b);
void test_call(void)
        test_add2(1, a, 2);

the second int argument is passed in R16:

        SUB       r2, r2, 0x02          ;
        LDI       r14, 0x0001           ; 
        ZERO      &r15, 4               ;
        LDI       r16, 0x0002           ; <---- Should have been R15
        SBBO      &r3.b2, r2, 0, 2      ;
        JAL       r3.w2, ||test_add2||  ;
        LBBO      &r3.b2, r2, 0, 2      ;
        ADD       r2, r2, 0x02          ;
        JMP       r3.w2                 ;
