Effects of Link Time Optimizations in Illegal Libraries
Fri Mar 29 03:45:00 GMT 2013
I know its sounds crazy, but what are the effects of LTO in libraries
with illegal code?
Can a library be tested without -flto and pass its tests, but fail to
operate correctly when used in production due to the optimizer
dropping illegal code?
I also realize that a library should be fixed, but that's another set
of [non-technical] problems....
