Bug #8349


[mingw] adding -mfpmath=sse -msse2 causes segv on Windows 7

Added by h.shirosaki (Hiroshi Shirosaki) about 9 years ago. Updated almost 8 years ago.

Target version:
ruby -v:
ruby 2.1.0dev (2013-04-30 trunk 40528) [i386-mingw32]


I tried -mfpmath=sse -msse2 with mingw on Windows 7 and got 2 segv while make test-all.

Here is the detail.

I don't know why these options causes segv, but adding volatile seems to fix this.
Is this ok to commit?

うーん、SSE を使って自動ベクトル化するときに何かバグを踏んでいるんですかねぇ。
objdump か何かでそれぞれの関数を逆アセンブルして貼って頂けませんか。

I think -mstackrealign flag is the proper solution of this issue.

Thank you. I'll use -mstackrealign with sse.

I've confirmed that with disassemble.
