Re: PATCH: PR ld/12730: regression] crash when allocating in a static constructor
I'm starting to wonder whether ld/testsuite/ld-elf/pr12730.cc is
valid. Does gcc actually make any guarantee about order of static
constructors and __attribute ((constructor)) functions?
Compiled with gcc-4.3 branch g++, the testcase segfaults at all
optimization levels. Compiled with gcc-4.4 branch g++, the testcase
runs at -O0 but segfaults at -O1 and above. It happens to run OK with
gcc mainline and 4.6. Given that behaviour, and the fact that some
popular distros ship gcc-4.4 based compilers, I'm thinking that the
testcase should be removed.
