            Bug ID: 95432
           Summary: inconsistent behaviors at -O2
           Product: gcc
           Version: 10.0
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P3
         Component: debug
          Assignee: unassigned at gcc dot gnu.org
          Reporter: yangyibiao at hust dot edu.cn
  Target Milestone: ---

Consider test case:
...
$ cat small.c
__attribute__ ((noinline, noclone)) 
int foo (char *c)
{
  asm volatile ("" : : "r" (c) : "memory");
  return 1;
}

int main ()
{
  char tpl1[20] = "/tmp/test.XXX";
  char tpl2[20] = "/tmp/test.XXX";
  int fd1 = foo (tpl1);
  int fd2 = foo (tpl2);
  if (fd1 == -1) {
    return 1;
  }

  return 0;
}
...



When stepping with step, line 13 is not hit by gdb.
