namespace llvm {

// LLI messages from parent-to-child or vice versa follow an exceedingly simple
// protocol where the first four bytes represent the message type, the next
// four bytes represent the size of data for the command and following bytes
// represent the actual data.
//
// The protocol is not intended to be robust, secure or fault-tolerant.  It is
// only here for testing purposes and is therefore intended to be the simplest
// implementation that will work.  It is assumed that the parent and child
// share characteristics like endianness.
//
// Quick description of the protocol:
//
// { Header + Payload Size + Payload }
//
// The protocol message consist of a header, the payload size (which can be
// zero), and the payload itself. The payload can contain any number of items,
// and the size has to be the sum of them all. Each end is responsible for
// reading/writing the correct number of items with the correct sizes.
//
// The current four known exchanges are:
//
//  * Allocate Space:
//   Parent: { LLI_AllocateSpace, 8, Alignment, Size }
//    Child: { LLI_AllocationResult, 8, Address }
//
//  * Load Data:
//   Parent: { LLI_LoadDataSection, 8+Size, Address, Data }
//    Child: { LLI_LoadComplete, 4, StatusCode }
//
//  * Load Code:
//   Parent: { LLI_LoadCodeSection, 8+Size, Address, Code }
//    Child: { LLI_LoadComplete, 4, StatusCode }
//
//  * Execute Code:
//   Parent: { LLI_Execute, 8, Address }
//    Child: { LLI_ExecutionResult, 4, Result }
//
// It is the responsibility of either side to check for correct headers,
// sizes and payloads, since any inconsistency would misalign the pipe, and
// result in data corruption.
