Subject v8plus Solaris instructions, asm code and atomic add
Date Tue, 17 Aug 2004 00:05:38 GMT
We have experienced crashes on Solaris which we think are partly to do with the -xarch=v8plus
However, removing it is impossible (or is there a way?!) without disabling the assembly code
inside "thread.cpp". I have some questions on that:

1. Why was asm code used in the first place for atomic add instead of the solaris' InterlockedIncrement?
   I suspect this was due to some bug in some version or other of SunOS implementation with
conjunction of the v8 flags, but I'd
   be most grateful to hear more details, or whether there is a specific CC/Solaris patch
   that handles that.
2. Disabling the assembly code allows us to compile without the v8plus optimization flag (with
the downside of
not being thread-safe), and log4cxx seems to work fine with DOMConfigurator, but, alas, crashes
on PropertyConfigurator, this time
on the actual Solaris underlying __AtomicAdd32, when referencing stl strings (from within

Any ideas on how to proceed will be welcome, as I am running out of any very quickly...

Many thanks,

PS - For anyone with morbid interest, below are two stack traces, both from PropertyConfigurator
crash, the first one
when using the -xarch=v8plus flag, and the second when disabling the sparc_atomic_add_32 method
of thread.cpp file
and building without that flag:
