Fails to spot logical error

Bug Description

Using '6 2017-q2-update' and '6 2017-q1-update' from the ARM web site.

The following code from a library does not cause a warning with the '-Wlogical-op' warning option:-


Note the use of && instead of &.

The same code using GCC 4.9.3 supplied in the Ubuntu 16.04 package manager (i.e. 'arm-none-eabi-gcc (15:4.9.3+svn231177-1) 4.9.3 20150529 (prerelease)' to be precise) correctly gives a warning:-

em_vdac.c:197:35: warning: logical 'and' applied to non-boolean constant [-Wlogical-op]

The x86 version of GCC 5.4.0 also works correctly.

Its really a GCC problem, but it is worth pointing out since when it works this option is very useful.

Hi Mike,

Could you provide us with a standalone preprocessed testcase? Compiling with -save-temps and sending us the .i (or .ii if this is a C++ code) file would do this. Please also give the full command-line you used for compiling that testcase.

Best regards.

I have created a minimal example for this. It has 2 functions: test1(), which does emit -Wlogical-op as expected, and test2(), where -Wlogical-op would be really nice to have.
The issue described is found in Silicon Labs EFM32 SDK, and can be seen here in line 197 and 203.

Expired, why?
The testcase was provided as requested.

Hi Leo, this is an automated action from Launchpad as the message suggest it. My apologies but I haven't had time to have a look at it. I'll try to reproduce it on latest GCC development tree in the next week or so which will decide what is the next action.

Best regards.

Hi Thomas, do you still intend to look into this?
If so, please set status to something other than expired.

I can reproduce the two warnings with the testcase provided in comment #3 up to the 5-2016Q3 release but get only 1 warning (for test1) in 6-2016Q4.
