However, with current mainline, and with this patch bootstrap *with
vectorization enabled* fails on x86. It seems to me that this is the same
failure we've had for a while on mainline on ppc-linux, as reported in
pr28752, which has nothing to do with this patch (probably just exposed by
I'm thinking, if no objection (within, say, 48 hours), to commit the patch
despite the above, while I continue to try to track down the cause of the
bootstrap failure with vectorization enabled.
Did your regular bootstrap (i.e. without vectorization) include
Fortran? If not, then I would like to suggest you bootstrap with
Fortran enabled, because the Fortran runtime library (libgfortran)
compiles a few files with vectorization. We've had a few regressions
due to that already, and we could do without another.
