fix of hipe crashes in gc
Sat Jul 17 15:07:22 CEST 2010
I have been experiencing crashes in the garbage collector when running erlang with natively compiled modules, and especially with OTP configured with --enable-native-libs.
This has been discussed before, including by others:
I finally got a reproduceable case and nailed the bug down. The bug was introduced in R12B-0, when the function erts_gc_after_bif_call was updated to take 4 parameters but the assembly glue code was not updated to pass proper values for the third and fourth parameters.
A fix is available here:
git fetch git://github.com/pguyot/otp.git pg/fix-hipe-crash-in-gc_after_bif
Please note that I only tested it on x86 and amd64 platforms.
