[PATCH] MIPS: Add 'memory' clobber to csum_ipv6_magic() inline assembler

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


After 'lib: checksum: Use aligned accesses for ip_fast_csum and
csum_ipv6_magic tests' was applied, the test_csum_ipv6_magic unit test
started failing for all mips platforms, both little and bit endian.
Oddly enough, adding debug code into test_csum_ipv6_magic() made the
problem disappear.

The gcc manual says:

"The "memory" clobber tells the compiler that the assembly code performs
 memory reads or writes to items other than those listed in the input
 and output operands (for example, accessing the memory pointed to by one
 of the input parameters)

This is definitely the case for csum_ipv6_magic(). Indeed, adding the
'memory' clobber fixes the problem.
