#773 closed defect (fixed)

powerpc decrementer clock corrupted

Reported by: strauman Owned by: Joel Sherrill
Priority: highest Milestone: 2
Component: bsps Version: 4.7
Severity: critical Keywords:
Cc: bugs@… Blocked By:


Input register is clobbered in multi-statement asm resulting in incorrect re-load of the decrementer by clock ISR.

Note that the problem may or may not be triggered, depending on compiler strategies. Apparently, the 4.7 toolchain does trigger it but I don't consider the 4.6 compiler safe either. Needs to be fixed on both branches.

4.6, 4.7
