Description Tianlin Wang 2007-02-13 15:49:38 UTC
Description of problem:
A c++ code generates 'Segmentation' message when it is complied with 
-O2. It works fine with other optimization levels such as -O,-O3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I only observed this bug in FC6. My machine is Atholon64

How reproducible:

/** The following code will end with 'Segmentation' if compiled with -O2 **/
/** It works fine with other optimization levels such -O, -O3 **/

/************ BEGIN OF CODE ***********/
#include <string>
#include <cstddef>

struct AA {
  int def;

struct BB {
  AA *alltype;

void compute(int n,BB *grand=NULL);

int main(int argc, char *argv[])
   return 0;

void compute(int n,BB *grand)
  int t;
   for (t=0; t<n; t++) {
      if (grand) grand->alltype[t].def += 1;

/********* END OF CODE **********/

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile the sample code with -O2
2. run it
3. you will see the 'Segmentation' on the screen
Actual results:

Expected results:

Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2007-02-13 16:11:48 UTC
Simplified C testcase:
struct S
  int *s;

test (int x, struct S *y)
  int i;
  for (i = 0; i < x; i++)
      if (y)
        y->s[i] += 1;

main ()
  test (1, (void *) 0);
  return 0;

This seems to be a RTL strength reduction bug, present also on vanilla
gcc-4_1-branch.  -O2 -fno-strength-reduce cures this.

Tracking upstream.
