nsz [Sat, 17 Mar 2012 12:46:15 +0000 (13:46 +0100)]
fix i386 fegetround and make fesetround faster

Note that the new fesetround has slightly different semantics:

Storing the floating-point environment with fnstenv makes the
next fldenv (or fldcw) "non-signaling", so unmasked and pending
exceptions does not invoke the exception handler.
(These are rare since exceptions are handled immediately and by
default all exceptions are masked anyway. But if one manually
unmasks an exception in the control word then either sets the
corresponding exception flag in the status word or the execution
of an exception raising floating-point operation gets interrupted
then it may happen).
So the old implementation did not trap in some rare cases
where the new implementation traps.

However POSIX does not specify anything like the x87 exception
handling traps and the fnstenv/fldenv pair is significantly slower
than the fnstcw/fldcw pair (new code is about 5x faster here and
it's dominated by the function call overhead).

10 years agowork around "signal loses thread pointer" issue with "approach 2"
Rich Felker [Mon, 27 Feb 2012 23:51:02 +0000 (18:51 -0500)]
work around "signal loses thread pointer" issue with "approach 2"

this was discussed on the mailing list and no consensus on the
preferred solution was reached, so in anticipation of a release, i'm
just committing a minimally-invasive solution that avoids the problem
by ensuring that multi-threaded-capable programs will always have
initialized the thread pointer before any signal handler can run.

in the long term we may switch to initializing the thread pointer at
program start time whenever the program has the potential to access
any per-thread data.

10 years agoreplace prototype for basename in string.h with non-prototype declaration
Rich Felker [Sat, 25 Feb 2012 04:23:47 +0000 (23:23 -0500)]
replace prototype for basename in string.h with non-prototype declaration

GNU programs may expect the GNU version of basename, which has a
different prototype (argument is const-qualified) and prototype it
themselves too. of course if they're expecting the GNU behavior for
the function, they'll still run into problems, but at least this
eliminates some compile-time failures.

Rich Felker [Fri, 24 Feb 2012 02:24:56 +0000 (21:24 -0500)]
cleanup and work around visibility bug in gcc 3 that affects x86_64

in gcc 3, the visibility attribute must be placed on both the
declaration and on the definition. if it's omitted from the
definition, the compiler fails to emit the ".hidden" directive in the
assembly, and the linker will either generate textrels (if supported,
such as on i386) or refuse to link (on targets where certain types of
textrels are forbidden or impossible without further assumptions about
memory layout, such as on x86_64).

this patch also unifies the decision about when to use visibility into
libc.h and makes the visibility in the utf-8 state machine tables
based on libc.h rather than a duplicate test.

10 years agoreplace bad cancellation cleanup abi with a sane one
Rich Felker [Thu, 9 Feb 2012 07:33:08 +0000 (02:33 -0500)]
replace bad cancellation cleanup abi with a sane one

the old abi was intended to duplicate glibc's abi at the expense of
being ugly and slow, but it turns out glib was not even using that abi
except on non-gcc-compatible compilers (which it doesn't even support)
and was instead using an exceptions-in-c/unwind-based approach whose
abi we could not duplicate anyway without nasty dwarf2/unwind

the new abi is copied from a very old glibc abi, which seems to still
be supported/present in current glibc. it avoids all unwinding,
whether by sjlj or exceptions, and merely maintains a linked list of
cleanup functions to be called from the context of pthread_exit. i've
made some care to ensure that longjmp out of a cleanup function should
work, even though it is not required to.

this change breaks abi compatibility with programs which were using
pthread cancellation, which is unfortunate, but that's why i'm making
the change now rather than later. considering that most pthread
features have not been usable until recently anyway, i don't see it as
a major issue at this point.
