3.17.1 AArch64 Options

These options are defined for AArch64 implementations:

-mbig-endian

Generate big-endian code. This is the default when GCC is configured for an ‘aarch64_be-*-*’ target.

-mgeneral-regs-only

Generate code which uses only the general registers.

-mlittle-endian

Generate little-endian code. This is the default when GCC is configured for an ‘aarch64-*-*’ but not an ‘aarch64_be-*-*’ target.

-mcmodel=tiny

Generate code for the tiny code model. The program and its statically defined symbols must be within 1GB of each other. Pointers are 64 bits. Programs can be statically or dynamically linked. This model is not fully implemented and mostly treated as ‘small’.

-mcmodel=small

Generate code for the small code model. The program and its statically defined symbols must be within 4GB of each other. Pointers are 64 bits. Programs can be statically or dynamically linked. This is the default code model.

-mcmodel=large

Generate code for the large code model. This makes no assumptions about addresses and sizes of sections. Pointers are 64 bits. Programs can be statically linked only.

-mstrict-align

Do not assume that unaligned memory references will be handled by the system.

-momit-leaf-frame-pointer
-mno-omit-leaf-frame-pointer

Omit or keep the frame pointer in leaf functions. The former behaviour is the default.

-mtls-dialect=desc

Use TLS descriptors as the thread-local storage mechanism for dynamic accesses of TLS variables. This is the default.

-mtls-dialect=traditional

Use traditional TLS as the thread-local storage mechanism for dynamic accesses of TLS variables.

-march=name

Specify the name of the target architecture, optionally suffixed by one or more feature modifiers. This option has the form ‘-march=arch{+[no]feature}*’, where the only value for arch is ‘armv8-a’. The possible values for feature are documented in the sub-section below.

Where conflicting feature modifiers are specified, the right-most feature is used.

GCC uses this name to determine what kind of instructions it can emit when generating assembly code. This option can be used in conjunction with or instead of the ‘-mcpu=’ option.

-mcpu=name

Specify the name of the target processor, optionally suffixed by one or more feature modifiers. This option has the form ‘-mcpu=cpu{+[no]feature}*’, where the possible values for cpu are ‘generic’, ‘large’. The possible values for feature are documented in the sub-section below.

Where conflicting feature modifiers are specified, the right-most feature is used.

GCC uses this name to determine what kind of instructions it can emit when generating assembly code.

-mtune=name

Specify the name of the processor to tune the performance for. The code will be tuned as if the target processor were of the type specified in this option, but still using instructions compatible with the target processor specified by a ‘-mcpu=’ option. This option cannot be suffixed by feature modifiers.
