In addition to regression testing it is important to perform tests on larger software packages. The key packages used for GCC 2.95 testing are the Linux kernel, GNU C library, Red Hat 6.0 sources and the LAPACK library.
-O3 -funroll-loops fails
|i686-unknown-linux-gnu||OK||OK||compat-binutils compat-egcs kdelibs korganizer python sgml-tools||OK|
Note the linux kernel, modules and related code must be compiled with -fno-strict-aliasing as the linux kernel violates ANSI/ISO C standards used to perform type based alias analysis.
GCC 2.95 has known bugs accessing complex values on 64bit targets. This particularly effects Fortran code (such as lapack) on Alphas, MIPS potentially other 64bit platforms.
