patches for tcc.

I see. What patches do you currently have, if I may ask?

Sorry, no patches for code-generation.
My patches are to make tcc native on uclibc.
And they are probably broken by now, hence why I need
to spend time on them again.

I've seen a few strange things in the code generated by tcc, like mov $0x0,
%eax followed by a mov $0x0,%eax.

I was wondering whether it is possible to make tcc output position independent code (PIC). That probably takes a rewrite of i386-gen.c, right?

Plus tccelf.c apparently.

I'm also having problems with -b, which makes the program crash sometimes.

Hmmm, I've not used that flag as I want small code size.
