Description David Woodhouse 2006-08-13 23:36:00 UTC
$ cat foo.i
struct tss_struct;

extern struct tss_struct *doublefault_tss;

struct tss_struct {
} __attribute__((packed));

 $ gcc -c --combine foo.i foo.i
 $ gcc -c --combine foo.i foo.i foo.i
foo.i:3: error: conflicting types for ‘doublefault_tss’
foo.i:3: error: previous declaration of ‘doublefault_tss’ was here

Removing the packed attribute, or compiling only _two_ of them together, makes it work.

Seen with ppc->i686 GCC 4.1.0 and also
Fedora PowerPC gcc version 4.1.1 20060525 (Red Hat 4.1.1-1.pr27898)

(Both with Alex's patch for pr27898).
Comment 1 Andrew Pinski 2006-08-13 23:46:15 UTC
Confirmed, this worked in 3.4.0.
Comment 2 Joseph S. Myers 2006-08-15 16:03:27 UTC
The C front end part of the patch is OK.

	PR c/28706
	PR c/28712
	* tree.c (merge_attributes, attribute_list_contained): If both
	TREE_VALUEs are TREE_LISTs, use simple_cst_list_equal instead of
	* c-typeck.c (comptypes_internal): Don't consider aggregates
	in different TUs as compatible if there one set of attributes is
	not a subset of the other type's attributes.
	(composite_type): Try harder not to create a new aggregate type.

	* gcc.dg/pr28706.c: New test.
	* gcc.dg/pr28712.c: New test.

won't fix in GCC-4.0.x.  Adjusting milestone.

> won't fix in GCC-4.0.x.  Adjusting milestone.

For anyone interested, I think this is fixed for at least gcc 4.2.2; I couldn't reproduce it.
Comment 6 Joseph S. Myers 2008-07-04 15:49:38 UTC
Closing 4.1 branch.
