Description Andrew Stevens 2001-06-26 03:18:49 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.0 i686)

Description of problem:
Some but not all references to absolute addresses as immediate
operands appear are incorrectly linked.  They link to start of the text
segment rather than than the appropriate data / bss addr.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:

<See attached source-code>

Actual Results:  

0x805b150 <idct_mmx>:   push   %ebp
0x805b151 <idct_mmx+1>: mov    %esp,%ebp
0x805b153 <idct_mmx+3>: push   %eax
0x805b154 <idct_mmx+4>: push   %ebx
0x805b155 <idct_mmx+5>: push   %ecx
0x805b156 <idct_mmx+6>: push   %edx
0x805b157 <idct_mmx+7>: push   %edi
0x805b158 <idct_mmx+8>: mov    0x8(%ebp),%eax
0x805b15b <idct_mmx+11>:        mov    $0x0,%edi
0x805b160 <idct_mmx+16>:        lea    0x805b150,%ebx    
Ouch! Points to code seg!  
0x805b166 <idct_mmx+22>:        lea    0x805b150,%ecx
0x805b16c <idct_mmx+28>:        lea    0x8061fa8,%edx
0x805b172 <idct_mmx+34>:        jmp    0x805b190 <lpa>

Which version of nasm? Does the version in Rawhide (0.98-7) help?
Comment 3 Lans Carstensen 2001-06-29 19:36:23 EDT
We are seeing the same issues.  The problem is actually introduced in the
nasm-0.98-boguself.patch in the nasm source rpm.  Altering the SPEC file to not
patch the source tree and then rebuilding the rpm corrects this issue for us.

HJ, this was your patch... comments?

Comment 6 hjl 2001-07-02 16:07:55 EDT
I just uploaded my current patch. It works with all testcases I have.
Comment 7 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-07-02 16:09:34 EDT
Can the reporter give the updated patch a try?
Comment 8 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-07-27 23:52:57 EDT
Still awaiting feedback from the reporter on whether or not the patch helps.
Comment 9 redhat-bugs2eran 2001-07-28 18:41:13 EDT
FYI, the proposed patch fixes a problem with LAME 3.89beta.
It dumps core when compiled with nasm-0.98-7 but works with the proposed patch.

Package: ftp://lame.sourceforge.net/pub/lame/src/lame3.89beta.tar.gz
Build and test command:
  bash%  CC=kgcc  ./configure --enable-nasm  --enable-extopt=full ; make ; make test

Note that when gcc-2.96 is used instead of kgcc (egcs-2.91.66) other problems occur, unrelated to nasm.
Comment 10 redhat-bugs2eran 2001-07-28 19:56:01 EDT
Correction to last note: the build command is just
    CC=kgcc  ./configure --enable-nasm ; make ; make test
Comment 11 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-08-07 14:04:55 EDT
Fix in nasm-0.98-8
