//===-- ShadowStackGC.cpp - GC support for uncooperative targets ----------===//

//
// This file implements lowering for the llvm.gc* intrinsics for targets that do
// not natively support them (which includes the C backend). Note that the code
// generated is not quite as efficient as algorithms which generate stack maps
// to identify roots.
//
// This pass implements the code transformation described in this paper:
//   "Accurate Garbage Collection in an Uncooperative Environment"
//   Fergus Henderson, ISMM, 2002
//
// In runtime/GC/SemiSpace.cpp is a prototype runtime which is compatible with
// ShadowStackGC.
//
// In order to support this particular transformation, all stack roots are
// coallocated in the stack. This allows a fully target-independent stack map
// while introducing only minor runtime overhead.
