#921 closed bug (fixed)

Floating point with -O and -fasm is broken

Reported by: guest Owned by: igloo
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.6.1
Component: Compiler (NCG) Version: 6.4.1

Operating System: Linux Architecture: x86_64 (amd64)

I have some simple floating-point code that fails badly when you compile it with -O and -fasm on x86_64. Here is the program:

log2 x = ceiling log_x

where log_x
Double log_x = logBase 2 (fromIntegral (max 1 x))

vals = [1, 2, 17, 259, 1000, 10000,

230 + 9000, 231 - 1, 231, 231 + 1, 232 - 1, 232, 232 + 1]

main :: IO () main = putStrLn (show (map log2 vals))

The result should be: [0,1,5,9,10,14,31,31,32,32,32,32,33]

With -O and -fasm on x86_64 the last five values are corrupted (four very large numbers I'm not going to paste here, followed by 0).

Versions I have tried (all with the same problem) include 6.4.1, 6.4.2, 6.4.3-20061001 and 6.5-20061002.

I have a fix for this (use q suffix instructions like cvtsi2sdq). I'm going to try to generate test cases for all the instructions, then I'll do a build and check it all looks OK.

Cool. Please let me know when a build is ready and I'll certainly be eager to try it out.

In addition, would it be possible for this fix to be included in 6.4.3 as well? It would be helpful if there were a 6.4 compiler that didn't have this issue.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Any recent nightly HEAD build should have the fix, and i've just pushed it to the 6.6 branch.

6.4.3 has been tagged now, and this fix didn't make it I'm afraid.

Thanks Ian
