1、globe pointer($gp) define
1.1、It is the address in the middle of data sections.
1.2、Linker places scalar data around it so that they can be accessed efficiently by $gp-based load/store instructions and their addresses can be calculated efficiently by $gp-based add instructions.

2、$gp relative instruction
2.1、swi.gp Rt,[+(imm17s<<2)]
Rt = [imm17s<<2]
The (imm17s << 2) value covers a range of 512K byte region relative to the location pointed to by the GP register.
2.2、ADDI.gp Rt, imm19s
Rt = R29 + SE(imm19s)
The imm19s value covers a range of 512K byte region relative to the location pointed to by the GP register.

3、$gp example at assembly
3.1、Relax optimization
3.1.1、Default is on.
3.1.2、Trun off relax linker option : -mno-relax.

In AndeSight v210 or BSPv400 , the compiler is implement "cmodel" function.

What is the "cmodel"?

The cmodel default is medium.

The compiler can not disable the gp instruction at cmodel=medium and cmodel=small.

If don't the gp instruction that the setting c compiler addition "-mcmodel=large" and the linker addition "-mcmodel=large -mno-relax".

The "cmodel" option that the c compiler and linker must be the same.
