Description Hakon Bugge 2005-10-27 09:09:34 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Opera/8.50 (Windows NT 5.1; U; en)

Description of problem:
Incorrect actual parameter to asm("movups") crashes compiler.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gcc version 3.4.3 20050227 (Red Hat 3.4.3-22.1)  

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.gcc4 -msse3 gcc_zomplex_movups_bug.c

Actual Results:  gcc_zomplex_movups_bug.c: In function ?MPI_op_scalar_zmplx_sum?:
gcc_zomplex_movups_bug.c:24: internal compiler error: in emit_move_insn, at 
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:http://gcc.gnu.org/bugs.html> for instructions.
Preprocessed source stored into /tmp/cckzhovQ.out file, please attach this to 
your bugreport.

Expected Results:  An error message from compiler telling me that I use incorrect actual parameter 
to the movups instruction.

Additional info:

The whole scenario stems from the fact that load/store of vector variables 
assumes perfect alignment. Since there is no way to tell gcc that the address to 
a vector variable is misaligned, and hence gcc should emit movups instead of 
movaps, the programmer must explicit check for alignment and use inline assembly 
to generate movups.

I have submittet a "bug report" http://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?
id=20982 on the issue. In my opinion, there should be a way to specify alignment 
of vector variables. By allowing __atrribute__ ((aligned)) to specify alignment 
down to the basic type is an idea.
