Description David Monniaux 2003-03-15 13:08:18 UTC
Description of problem:

fesetround() does not set SSE rounding modes, even though gcc now has options to
compile floating-point code to SSE.

(Checked in glibc source code.)

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 2.2.93

How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1.Write code using fesetround() and whose results depends on the correct
rounding mode being set.
2.Compile with or without -march=pentium4 -msse -msse2
3.Compare the results.
Actual results:

The rounding mode is not set.

Expected results:

The rounding mode should be set.

Additional info:

Reported to glibc gnats as bug libc/4987.
Fix: use stmxcsr/ldmxcsr.

I've checked in a patch in the official glibc CVS archive.  They should appear
in the next RPM.
