Description of problem:
Compiling the attached program with "-O -march=pentium4 -mfpmath=sse" causes the
compiler to get confused.  Leaving off -mfpmath=sse or -O, or specifying
-march=i686 work (although the latter issues a warning that 387 will be used

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  gcc -v -c -O -march=pentium4 -mfpmath=sse mipmap2.c  (attached)

Comment 2 Valdis Kletnieks 2002-12-03 22:44:50 UTC
gcc version 3.2.1 20021125 (Red Hat Linux 8.0 3.2.1-1)

Still crashes with same symptoms.

Interestingly enough, -O, -O2, and -O3 all cause the error, but -Os does *NOT*.
Examining the assembly output from '-S' shows references to %xmmN for n in 0..3
so apparently it is using the -mfpmath=sse even with -Os.  So the problem is in
some optimization inhibited with -Os.

Comment 3 Valdis Kletnieks 2003-06-11 03:18:16 UTC
Re-tested with rawhide gcc-3.3-5, problem is fixed.  Possibly fixed earlier,
have not re-checked lately.
