Comment 1 Gwyn Ciesla 2013-03-19 13:52:31 UTC
Fixed up bad dates in rawhide, but still fails on my rpi.  Investigating.

Comment 2 Vitezslav Crhonek 2013-03-19 14:18:47 UTC
Build is finished fine, the error occurs in %check section. One of the test binary segfaults on ARM.

Patch to replace ARM (XScale) atomic operations

This patch replaces the XScale and x86 GNU platform specific assembly code for atomic operations with platform-neutral code from GCC builtins (libatomic).

Comment 4 D. Marlin 2013-04-22 20:26:47 UTC
I believe the issue is in the atomic operations on ARM:


The code there was old (XScale), and did not work on modern ARM SOCs.  I replaced that code with platform neutral code using GCC built-ins (libatomic), and was able to successfully complete a build.

Since the new code is platform neutral, I also tried replacing the x86 GNU atomic operations with the same (shared) code, and a scratch build completed successfully on both ARM and x86:

I have uploaded a patch for 2.12.1 that makes the above changes.

Comment 5 D. Marlin 2013-05-02 13:20:37 UTC
A newer patch has been submitted upstream.  Please see:

If accepted, it will be applied to the trunk and 2.12-branch.

Comment 6 D. Marlin 2013-05-06 16:35:30 UTC
This has now been commited upstream.
