[cfe-dev] CFSTR and NSConstantString

Hello the list,
We'd like to be able to support CFSTR() with GNUstep emitting NSConstantString instances. There are three ways that I can do this:
1) Make CodeGenModule::GetAddrOfConstantCFString() check if the gnu runtime is being used and call the CGObjCRuntime function to emit the string if it is.
2) Add a new builtin, __builtin___NSStringMakeConstantString(), which behaves exactly like __builtin___CFStringMakeConstantString() but emits a new ObjC constant string, rather than a new CF string (although, with the Mac runtimes, they will be the same thing anyway).
3) Add a new option, like -fcfstrings-as-nsstrings which makes CF strings into NSStrings.
My preference is on the first option, although largely because it's the least effort for me. Does anyone have any preferences or objections?
