Description Marek Polacek 2013-08-13 13:10:40 EDT
Currently, we build libitm.so with the system RHEL binutils; these don't support HTM.  Yet we want the HTM bits in the libitm.

objdump -dr on libitm.so.1 should show xbegin, xend etc insns.

Created attachment 786217 [details]

A patch to do that.
Comment 4 Marek Polacek 2013-08-14 07:35:18 EDT
QA: Note that for testing you'll have to use objdump from at least F17; F16 is too old.
