[MLton] C codegen and world* regressions
Fri, 16 Jun 2006 15:58:50 -0400 (EDT)
The "may_alias" attribute isn't understood (and consequently ignored) by
gcc 3.2.2, such as exists on Red Hat Enterprise Server AS version 4; this
is used by runtime/util/pointer.h; I ran the regression suite with
-codegen c just to verify that it wasn't causing any issues (though, the
pointer typedef is used most heavily in the runtime/gc, not in C-codegen
emitted code). In any case, I'm getting errors on all of the world*
unhandled exception: SysErr: Success [<UNKNOWN>]
unhandled exception: Fail: child failed
Nonzero exit status.
I'm guessing this is due to the reorganization of world save/restore in
r4642 and r4648; it'll cause problems with bootstraps on non-x86 systems.
