Description Ned Konz 2006-03-27 07:19:43 UTC

This program (which has no included files) causes an ICE and a bus error:


typedef unsigned char uint8_t ;
typedef unsigned short uint16_t ;
typedef unsigned long uint32_t ;

#define PROGMEM __attribute__((__progmem__))

template<typename T>
T PROGMEM * rom(const T& init)
	static T PROGMEM t = init;
	return &t;

struct funny
    uint8_t a;
    uint16_t b;
    uint32_t c;

uint8_t PROGMEM *rom1 = rom((uint8_t)123);

funny f = { 0xBB, 0xCCCC, 0xDDDDEEEE };
funny PROGMEM *rom2 = rom(f);

int main()
    *((volatile uint8_t*)0x55) = *rom1;
    *((volatile uint8_t*)0xAA) = rom2->a;

bool __cxa_guard_acquire(uint8_t *gv) { return true; }
bool __cxa_guard_release(uint8_t *gv) { return true; }

Compile the above program. I used the command line:

avr-g++ -mmcu=atmega128 -c -o romtest2.o romtest2.cpp

and got this:

romtest2.cpp: In function 'T* rom(const T&) [with T = uint8_t]':
romtest2.cpp|21| instantiated from here
romtest2.cpp|10| internal compiler error: Bus error

Created attachment 11133 [details]
Test program (no included files) demonstrating the problem.
Comment 2 Ned Konz 2006-05-01 15:01:22 UTC
Still present in 4.2-20060429 snapshot.
Comment 3 Eric Weddington 2007-07-25 17:42:10 UTC
Confirmed for 4.2.1 on mingw host.

Comment 4 Georg-Johann Lay 2011-06-10 20:30:12 UTC
Reduded testcase that threds avr-gcc 4.5.2:

template<typename T>
T * rom (const T& init)
    static T t = init;
    return &t;

int * rom1 = rom(123);

extern bool __cxa_guard_acquire (void*);
Comment 5 Georg-Johann Lay 2012-03-03 14:08:33 UTC
Works in 4.7.0, thus closed
