diff of disassembled files
sha .s and .o files
Description Matthias Klose 2009-10-27 23:54:55 UTC
The patch to fix PR gas/10704 causes sha.cpp assembled in a way that causes the sha-256 test not to terminate. Undoing the patch runs the test fine. Replacing the sha.o with one assembled with gas having this patch reverted lets the test pass.

Created attachment 4330 [details] sha .s and .o files
Comment 3 Alan Modra 2009-10-28 02:53:32 UTC
Simpler testcase: .text .intel_syntax noprefix .space 5480 .byte 0,0,0 0: .space 1620 .byte 0 1: .space 2468 nop jne 1b .space 52 nop jl 0b Without the .intel_syntax this assembles OK.

checked that the sha test passes, when sha.o is built with this patch.

Comment 9 David-Sarah Hopwood 2009-12-13 17:55:22 UTC
Any indication of when this fix is likely to get into a release? The more OS distributions as 2.20 goes into, the more problems this bug will cause.

This launchpad page tracks the increasing number of OS distributions and open source projects that are being negatively affected by the bug in 2.20: https://bugs.launchpad.net/fedora/+source/binutils/+bug/461303

Comment 12 Zooko O'Whielacronx 2010-07-06 04:44:56 UTC
Hey folks, some distributions such as MinGW have still not patched their version of binutils or reverted to binutils 2.19: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2913876&group_id=2435&atid=102435 This is still causing problems for my users: http://tahoe-lafs.org/trac/tahoe-lafs/ticket/853 If you folks could go ahead and release a binutil 2.20.1 then that might stimulate distributors like MinGW to upgrade to it and that would fix the problem for my users. Thanks!

binutils 2.20.1, released 2010-03-03, does *not* have the ChangeLog entry from http://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=10856#c5 but *does* have the patch to expr.c. Weird. But I guess it is fixed in binutils 2.20.1.
