I am not quite sure how to write a test for this. Tests that involve
just GCC will work before and after the changes because while the
parameter passing/returns was done "wrong" with respect to the ABI they
were done consistently within GCC. It is in the interaction between GCC
and HP C that the problem arises but I don't believe that GCC supports
that type of test involving GCC and the system compiler.
I suppose I could write a simple structure passing / returning test that
at least makes sure GCC still works in general and that nothing broke,
but it wouldn't be testing that this change had the intended affect. Do
you think that would be useful?
