Description Elena Zannoni 2005-08-01 16:11:03 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #162722 +++

Description:
Compiling code with '-W' causes warnings due to the static mutex initializer
macros not being complete/correct.

Release:
Fedora Core 4.

Reproducible:
Easily reproduced with the code below and also attached.
#include <stdio.h>
#include <pthread.h>

static pthread_mutex_t some_static_mutex = PTHREAD_MUTEX_INITIALIZER;
//static pthread_rwlock_t some_static_rwmutex = PTHREAD_RWLOCK_INITIALIZER;
static pthread_cond_t some_static_condition = PTHREAD_COND_INITIALIZER;

int main(int argc, char ** argv)
{
        fprint("compiler error above if compiled with -W option\n");
}

/*
gcc -W fc4-gcc4-mutex.c -c 
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:4: warning: missing initializer
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:4: warning: (near initialization for
'some_static_mutex.__data.__count')
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:6: warning: missing initializer
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:6: warning: (near initialization for
'some_static_condition.__data.__futex')

NOTE:  I believe the pthread_rwlock_t has the same issue but I do not use it
in my project so I didn't test it.

*/

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cut/paste the above code into a file called 'fc4-gcc4-mutex.c'
2. run 'gcc -W -c fc4-gcc4-mutex.c'  I like 'gcc -W -Wall -Werror -c
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c'

  
Actual results:
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:4: warning: missing initializer
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:4: warning: (near initialization for
'some_static_mutex.__data.__count')
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:6: warning: missing initializer
fc4-gcc4-mutex.c:6: warning: (near initialization for
'some_static_condition.__data.__futex')


Expected results:
No warnings and successful compile.
