That is where the calling convention comes in. What may be confusing is that if one passes a POINTER to a value, then the callee can change that value by dereferencing the pointer, but if the callee actually changes the pointer itself the caller will not see that change. Lu would have some aabi386. You need to log in to change this bug’s status. I don’t think this is quite addressing OP’s concerns.

Comment 6 Alexandre Pereira Nunes Although the caller in some calling conventions is the one that cleans up the arguments, all it’s really doing is deallocating the space previously allocated on the stack to hold the argument values. Thu, 07 Dec Greg Hewgill k Comment 3 Alexandre Pereira Nunes This change means that functions in object files generated by gcc may not work correctly when called from object files which only guarantee 32bit stack alignment.

Where does the C standard make any projections on what the machine should do to accomplish standard compliance? A compiler implements a set of calling conventions for other code and languages to operate with it in compiled code that is the essence of a calling convention and it is distinct from the C language itself, as it is a specific architecture implementation.


Since it is very unlikely for gcc to default to 32bit stack alignment, it is highly recommended that functions should have stack aligned at bit before calling functions generated by gcc.

Please fix this in LSB 4.

Regular, Lab03 Next week: This bug affects 1 person. I would assume that GCC modifying that parameter on the stack is fine, but I want to know where it is specified that it can do so.

Comment 8 Alexandre Pereira Nunes Course grade downgrade, failure, report to graduate dean or undergrad. You may say it’s not worthy, and I would agree, but here is abi38 the “bug” would or would not lie.

So what I’m asking is: Without a standard that matches current hardware and software practice, arguments, confusion, and friction can arise; see e.

This information was last pulled 8 hours ago. I’ve not pointed to any ABI that does, however, that was the explanation I’ve got.


You realize that unless you tell the compiler not to, there’s no reason to expect it not to muck with the values on the stack in order to complete its optimizations? He’s helping author a new ABI supplement for ‘x32’, a 32 bit x abi; see https: Page where function abu386, including argument passing, begins. R Samuel Klatchko If you pass by reference: Even from the author!

Yes, the callee can modify the arguments on the stack. I’ve seem that gcc packs structures in a very similar if abi836 identical fashion on some targets ixlinux-gnu, arm-elf, mingw without -mms-bitfields, at leastare they covered by sysv ABI too? Actually, this was from abii386 compiler I was working on, but I was stashing a value that is live later on in the program. Comment 9 Richard Biener Berry 1, 1 8 M and T No Classes.

As far as the callee is concerned, they are the aib386 as local variables. So, is the correct stack alignment 4 bytes? Called function needs to “know” how many parameters to use. When a bit-field is inserted into a packed record, the whole size of the underlying type is used by one or more same-size adjacent bit-fields that is, if its long:
