Module RTL


The RTL intermediate language: abstract syntax and semantics. RTL stands for "Register Transfer Language". This is the first intermediate language after Cminor and CminorSel.

Abstract syntax


RTL is organized as instructions, functions and programs. Instructions correspond roughly to elementary instructions of the target processor, but take their arguments and leave their results in pseudo-registers (also called temporaries in textbooks). Infinitely many pseudo-registers are available, and each function has its own set of pseudo-registers, unaffected by function calls. Instructions are organized as a control-flow graph: a function is a finite map from ``nodes'' (abstract program points) to instructions, and each instruction lists explicitly the nodes of its successors.

Definition node := positive.

Inductive instruction: Type :=
  | Inop: node -> instruction
No operation -- just branch to the successor.
  | Iop: operation -> list reg -> reg -> node -> instruction
Iop op args dest succ performs the arithmetic operation op over the values of registers args, stores the result in dest, and branches to succ.
  | Iload: memory_chunk -> addressing -> list reg -> reg -> node -> instruction
Iload chunk addr args dest succ loads a chunk quantity from the address determined by the addressing mode addr and the values of the args registers, stores the quantity just read into dest, and branches to succ.
  | Istore: memory_chunk -> addressing -> list reg -> reg -> node -> instruction
Istore chunk addr args src succ stores the value of register src in the chunk quantity at the the address determined by the addressing mode addr and the values of the args registers, then branches to succ.
  | Icall: signature -> reg + ident -> list reg -> reg -> node -> instruction
Icall sig fn args dest succ invokes the function determined by fn (either a function pointer found in a register or a function name), giving it the values of registers args as arguments. It stores the return value in dest and branches to succ.
  | Itailcall: signature -> reg + ident -> list reg -> instruction
Itailcall sig fn args performs a function invocation in tail-call position.
  | Ibuiltin: external_function -> list reg -> reg -> node -> instruction
Ibuiltin ef args dest succ calls the built-in function identified by ef, giving it the values of args as arguments. It stores the return value in dest and branches to succ.
  | Icond: condition -> list reg -> node -> node -> instruction
Icond cond args ifso ifnot evaluates the boolean condition cond over the values of registers args. If the condition is true, it transitions to ifso. If the condition is false, it transitions to ifnot.
  | Ijumptable: reg -> list node -> instruction
Ijumptable arg tbl transitions to the node that is the n-th element of the list tbl, where n is the signed integer value of register arg.
  | Ireturn: option reg -> instruction.
Ireturn terminates the execution of the current function (it has no successor). It returns the value of the given register, or Vundef if none is given.

Definition code: Type := PTree.t instruction.

Record function: Type := mkfunction {
  fn_sig: signature;
  fn_params: list reg;
  fn_stacksize: Z;
  fn_code: code;
  fn_entrypoint: node
}.

A function description comprises a control-flow graph (CFG) fn_code (a partial finite mapping from nodes to instructions). As in Cminor, fn_sig is the function signature and fn_stacksize the number of bytes for its stack-allocated activation record. fn_params is the list of registers that are bound to the values of arguments at call time. fn_entrypoint is the node of the first instruction of the function in the CFG. fn_code_wf asserts that all instructions of the function have nodes no greater than fn_nextpc.

Definition fundef := AST.fundef function.

Definition program := AST.program fundef unit.

Definition funsig (fd: fundef) :=
  match fd with
  | Internal f => fn_sig f
  | External ef => ef_sig ef
  end.

Operational semantics


Definition genv := Genv.t fundef unit.
Definition regset := Regmap.t val.

Fixpoint init_regs (vl: list val) (rl: list reg) {struct rl} : regset :=
  match rl, vl with
  | r1 :: rs, v1 :: vs => Regmap.set r1 v1 (init_regs vs rs)
  | _, _ => Regmap.init Vundef
  end.

The dynamic semantics of RTL is given in small-step style, as a set of transitions between states. A state captures the current point in the execution. Three kinds of states appear in the transitions: In all three kinds of states, the cs parameter represents the call stack. It is a list of frames Stackframe res f sp pc rs. Each frame represents a function call in progress. res is the pseudo-register that will receive the result of the call. f is the calling function. sp is its stack pointer. pc is the program point for the instruction that follows the call. rs is the state of registers in the calling function.

Inductive stackframe : Type :=
  | Stackframe:
      forall (res: reg) (* where to store the result *)
             (f: function) (* calling function *)
             (sp: val) (* stack pointer in calling function *)
             (pc: node) (* program point in calling function *)
             (rs: regset), (* register state in calling function *)
      stackframe.

Inductive state : Type :=
  | State:
      forall (stack: list stackframe) (* call stack *)
             (f: function) (* current function *)
             (sp: val) (* stack pointer *)
             (pc: node) (* current program point in c *)
             (rs: regset) (* register state *)
             (m: mem), (* memory state *)
      state
  | Callstate:
      forall (stack: list stackframe) (* call stack *)
             (f: fundef) (* function to call *)
             (args: list val) (* arguments to the call *)
             (m: mem), (* memory state *)
      state
  | Returnstate:
      forall (stack: list stackframe) (* call stack *)
             (v: val) (* return value for the call *)
             (m: mem), (* memory state *)
      state.

Variable ge: genv.

Definition find_function
      (ros: reg + ident) (rs: regset) : option fundef :=
  match ros with
  | inl r => Genv.find_funct ge rs#r
  | inr symb =>
      match Genv.find_symbol ge symb with
      | None => None
      | Some b => Genv.find_funct_ptr ge b
      end
  end.

The transitions are presented as an inductive predicate step ge st1 t st2, where ge is the global environment, st1 the initial state, st2 the final state, and t the trace of system calls performed during this transition.

Execution of whole programs are described as sequences of transitions from an initial state to a final state. An initial state is a Callstate corresponding to the invocation of the ``main'' function of the program without arguments and with an empty call stack.

Inductive initial_state (p: program): state -> Prop :=
  | initial_state_intro: forall b f m0,
      let ge := Genv.globalenv p in
      Genv.init_mem p = Some m0 ->
      Genv.find_symbol ge p.(prog_main) = Some b ->
      Genv.find_funct_ptr ge b = Some f ->
      funsig f = signature_main ->
      initial_state p (Callstate nil f nil m0).

A final state is a Returnstate with an empty call stack.

Inductive final_state: state -> int -> Prop :=
  | final_state_intro: forall r m,
      final_state (Returnstate nil (Vint r) m) r.

The small-step semantics for a program.

Definition semantics (p: program) :=
