Description Sergio Durigan Junior 2014-04-24 22:43:33 UTC
This bug is about building GDB 7.7 with GCC 4.9.  Currently, this leads to some errors coming from BFD:

In file included from ../../gdb/defs.h:104:0,
                 from ../../gdb/cli/cli-dump.c:22:
../../gdb/cli/cli-dump.c: In function 'dump_bfd_file':
../bfd/bfd.h:302:108: error: right-hand operand of comma expression has no effect [-Werror=unused-value]
 #define bfd_set_section_vma(bfd, ptr, val) (((ptr)->vma = (ptr)->lma = (val)), ((ptr)->user_set_vma = TRUE), TRUE)
../../gdb/cli/cli-dump.c:197:3: note: in expansion of macro 'bfd_set_section_vma'
   bfd_set_section_vma (obfd, osection, vaddr);
../bfd/bfd.h:303:83: error: right-hand operand of comma expression has no effect [-Werror=unused-value]
 #define bfd_set_section_alignment(bfd, ptr, val) (((ptr)->alignment_power = (val)),TRUE)
../../gdb/cli/cli-dump.c:198:3: note: in expansion of macro 'bfd_set_section_alignment'
   bfd_set_section_alignment (obfd, osection, 0);

The fix already exists on the master branch:

It is just a matter of backporting it to the 7.7 branch before the 7.7.1 release.  I am creating this bug to document the issue.

This is an automated email from the git hooks/post-receive script. It was

    Following up on Tom's suggestion I am checking in a patch to replace the various
    bfd_xxx_set macros with static inline functions, so that we can avoid compile time
    warnings about comma expressions with unused values.
    	PR build/16873
    	* bfd-in.h (bfd_set_section_vma): Delete.
    	(bfd_set_section_alignment): Delete.

    	(bfd_set_cacheable): Delete.
    	* bfd.c (bfd_set_cacheable): New static inline function.
    	* section.c (bfd_set_section_userdata): Likewise.
    	(bfd_set_section_vma): Likewise.
    	(bfd_set_section_alignment): Likewise.
    	* bfd-in2.h: Regenerate.
