2018-10-16make thread-pointer-loading asm non-volatileRich Felker-1/+1
this will allow the compiler to cache and reuse the result, meaning we no longer have to take care not to load it more than once for the sake of archs where the load may be expensive. depends on commit 1c84c99913bf1cd47b866ed31e665848a0da84a2 for correctness, since otherwise the compiler could hoist loads during stage 3 of dynamic linking before the initial thread-pointer setup.
2015-11-02properly access mcontext_t program counter in cancellation handlerRich Felker-1/+1
using the actual mcontext_t definition rather than an overlaid pointer array both improves correctness/readability and eliminates some ugly hacks for archs with 64-bit registers bit 32-bit program counter. also fix UB due to comparison of pointers not in a common array object.
2012-10-15add support for TLS variant I, presently needed for arm and mipsRich Felker-0/+2
despite documentation that makes it sound a lot different, the only ABI-constraint difference between TLS variants II and I seems to be that variant II stores the initial TLS segment immediately below the thread pointer (i.e. the thread pointer points to the end of it) and variant I stores the initial TLS segment above the thread pointer, requiring the thread descriptor to be stored below. the actual value stored in the thread pointer register also tends to have per-arch random offsets applied to it for silly micro-optimization purposes. with these changes applied, TLS should be basically working on all supported archs except microblaze. I'm still working on getting the necessary information and a working toolchain that can build TLS binaries for microblaze, but in theory, static-linked programs with TLS and dynamic-linked programs where only the main executable uses TLS should already work on microblaze. alignment constraints have not yet been heavily tested, so it's possible that this code does not always align TLS segments correctly on archs that need TLS variant I.
2012-09-29microblaze portRich Felker-0/+8
based on initial work by rdp, with heavy modifications. some features including threads are untested because qemu app-level emulation seems to be broken and I do not have a proper system image for testing.
