There's nothing wrong with your account. This bug is for use by eCos
I apologize for inconvenience.
Below is a copy of the subject link that explains the reason for our
switch to 4.6.3.
The comment: ================
Another serious bug in GCC 4.6.2
I have started playing with Cortex-M4 Floating Point Unit and found out that
conversion between float and double doesn't work when hardware floating point
is on: -mcpu=cortex-m4 -mfloat-abi=hard -mfpu=fpv4-sp-d16
dbl = flo;
// dbl is rubish
It is due to wrong helper library and seem to be the following bug:
I tried GCC 4.6.3 and it seems to work. I'll do some more tests but IMO we
should start considering of replacing current 4.6.2-20120125 test release with
something newer, possibly 4.6.3. Building of 4.6.3, as noted by Sergei, is quite straight-forward - I just applied the 4.6.2 patches.
Of course, until this is resolved nothing can stop us from hunting warnings
with current test release.
