> This will generalise attributes used by some architectures (ppc, arm), won't it ?
Yes. Or at least it would if implemented as currently proposed. Maybe a better
solution would be to only record attributes where they are not already covered by
some target specific solution.
Personally I would prefer a nice, generalised solution, but the current target
specific attributes are mandated by the particular ABIs and so presumably are not
going to go away.
