Bug Description

Please sync rocm-hipamd 5.7.1-3 (universe) from Debian unstable (main)

This sync requires a FeatureFreeze exception

# Why a new upstream version is necessary

The Ubuntu Noble FeatureFreeze occurred while the ROCm stack on Debian was transitioning from ROCm 5.2 with clang-15 to ROCm 5.7 with clang-17. This has left the ROCm stack on Ubuntu Noble with a few problems:

1. Some packages in noble are based on clang-15 while others are based on clang-17. This mix of versions is not supported upstream and packages that depend on run-time compilation (such as rocfft) appear to be entirely broken. Noble will need to move rocm-hipamd to clang-17 to get all packages on one build toolchain, and the rocm-hipamd version is closely coupled to the compiler version.

2. The current version of rocm-hipamd (5.2.3) in noble is several years old and lacks support for modern hardware, such as the Radeon 7000 series of GPUs. As this is a library used for High-Performance Computing and AI, support for modern hardware is very important.

3. The current rocm-hipamd package depends on the rocm-device-libs binary package, which is not provided by any source package in noble. Ubuntu noble needs to complete the transition from rocm-device-libs to rocm-device-libs-17 and this requires updating rocm-hipamd to a newer upstream version.

4. The upstream ROCm 5.7.1 version was the last release of the ROCm 5 series. While both ROCm 5.2 and ROCm 5.7 are no longer supported upstream, there will be a much larger community using ROCm 5.7. Knowledge sharing within this larger community will be beneficial for the long-term maintenance of the noble release.

5. The versions of ROCm components included on Ubuntu Noble are very inconsistent. This FeatureFreeze exception is one of several that I will be filing in an attempt to get as much of the ROCm stack as possible onto the upstream 5.7.1 release. The narrower the range of versions, the better. Ubuntu does not have significant automated testing for the AMD GPU libraries, so it is safer to use versions that closely correspond to what upstream and Debian are using (as both do significant testing on these libraries).

I will be filing FeatureFreeze exceptions requests for rocrand, rocprim, rocthrust, rocfft, hipfft, rocsparse and hipsparse to get them all onto 5.7.1.

Hey Cory,

Thanks for filing the FFe. Whilst that is quite a bump from 5.2.3-13 to 5.7.1-2, I think that ratio of benefit to cost is rather positive. Having them in Noble will be a net win.

I'd like to approve this FFe as long as the builds, autopkgtests, and adequate smoke testing is performed for the package and its reverse dependencies prior to the upload to the archive. As long as that's done, consider this FFe approved.

The rdepends for rocm-hipamd are nearly all FTBFS due to the addition of 'cf-protection=return' and 'cf-protection=branch' to the CXXFLAGS. This is not a problem introduced by rocm-hipamd 5.7.1, but occurs with the current rocm-hipamd 5.2.3 as well. As such, this update has no effect on whether the rdepends successfully build. They will fail either way.

The autopkgtests for rocm-hipamd's rdepends all depend on GPU hardware and cannot be executed using the standard autopkgtest binaries. However, the rdepends nearly all package their tests and I've manually executed a large subset of the autopkgtest suite on my Radeon VII GPU. The test logs are attached as "noble-gfx906-hip-5.7.1.txt.zst". There are a couple failures, but I still regard these results as a pass. The tests for the ROCm math libraries are very fiddly and they behave slightly differently on each of the twenty seven different GPU architectures that are enabled by this package. When 99.9999% of them pass, you're doing pretty good.

The upstream rocm-hipamd package is now on 5.7.1-3, so I suppose that should be the target version for the sync.

For comparison, I've uploaded a test log of the rdepends using rocm-hipamd 5.2.3-12 on the same system. Note that is that the two failures are identical to the previous log for the rdepends using the rocm-hipamd 5.7.1-3 package.

Right now, version 5.7.1-3 fails to build in Noble because of some uninstallability issues:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
 libobjc-13-dev : Depends: gcc-13-base (= 13.2.0-13ubuntu1) but 13.2.0-17ubuntu2 is to be installed
                  Depends: libgcc-13-dev (= 13.2.0-13ubuntu1) but 13.2.0-17ubuntu2 is to be installed

This is happening because of the ongoing transitions. Since the package build would fail in the Ubuntu archive, I'm holding this sync until those things get sorted out.

I think those issues are now gone. I tried to build the package locally in a noble schroot and it succeeded. I'm proceeding with the sync.

Request succeeded; you should get an e-mail once it is processed.

(I didn't receive the e-mail yet, but maybe this is taking a bit longer because of the Beta Freeze. I'm marking this a Fix Released; please reach out if you think the sync didn't succeed.)
