#834 closed defect (fixed)

PPC BSP exception handler stack popping fix

Reported by: strauman Owned by: strauman
Priority: lowest Milestone: 2
Component: bsps Version: 4.6
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: bugs@… Blocked By:


The PPC ('new') exception handler pops the exception frame by adding a fixed offset (frame size) to the stack pointer (r1). If the exception handler modifies the stack (e.g., gdb does this when 'pushing a dummy frame') this algorithm is incorrect.
The fix reloads r1/SP from the info stored in the exception frame itself.
