testing with gcc-4.6 4.6.0-12 from debian unstable. the package builds. using the same debian gcc with -march=armv7-a -mthumb -mfloat-fp=softfp -mfpu=vfpv3-d16, the package fails in the test.

looks like an armv7/thumb regression in 4.6 compared to 4.5.

  * Use dpkg-buildflags to get the build flags.
  * Build with the default build flags, don't hard-code -Os. LP: #791315.

-O2 works on oneiric, -Os fails

Interesting. I can reproduce this with a libnih-1.0.3-4ubuntu2 with the -Os hacked back in, a natty chroot, and gcc-linaro-4.6-2011.06. I can't reproduce it using a maverick chroot. test_alloc faults before getting to _start which suggests a linker problem.

Running with LD_DEBUG=all /lib/ld-linux.so.3 ./test_alloc shows a segfault while running the init in librt.

Michael Hope (michaelh1) wrote :

Stubbing out librt doesn't fix the problem.

The problem seems to be outside the compiler. Using the same host, gcc-linaro-4.6-2011.06, and source package I see the fault when built on natty and run on natty or maverick; and don't see the fault if built on maverick and run on natty or maverick.

Richard, I've built libnih twice under ~michaelh/bugs/lp791315/libnih-{natty,maverick}

Both use gcc-linaro-4.6-2011.06-0 at -Os. The natty one uses binutils 2.21.0.20110327-2ubuntu3. The maverick one uses 2.20.51.20100908-0ubuntu2.

nih/test_alloc segfaults with the natty binutils and passes with the maverick one.

The maverick binutils is in ~michaelh/linaro/toolchains/binutils-maverick. Put $prefix/usr/bin in your path and $prefix/usr/lib in your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.

Richard Sandiford (rsandifo) wrote :

This is due to a bug in libc's start.S, which causes _start to be misaligned:
