2015-04-24fix build regression in aarch64 sigsetjmpRich Felker-2/+2
at least some assembler versions do not accept the register name lr. use the name x30 instead.
2015-04-17redesign sigsetjmp so that signal mask is restored after longjmpRich Felker-10/+12
the conventional way to implement sigsetjmp is to save the signal mask then tail-call to setjmp; siglongjmp then restores the signal mask and calls longjmp. the problem with this approach is that a signal already pending, or arriving between unmasking of signals and restoration of the saved stack pointer, will have its signal handler run on the stack that was active before siglongjmp was called. this can lead to unbounded stack usage when siglongjmp is used to leave a signal handler. in the new design, sigsetjmp saves its own return address inside the extended part of the sigjmp_buf (outside the __jmp_buf part used by setjmp) then calls setjmp to save a jmp_buf inside its own execution. it then tail-calls to __sigsetjmp_tail, which uses the return value of setjmp to determine whether to save the current signal mask or restore a previously-saved mask. as an added bonus, this design makes it so that siglongjmp and longjmp are identical. this is useful because the __longjmp_chk function we need to add for ABI-compatibility assumes siglongjmp and longjmp are the same, but for different reasons -- it was designed assuming either can access a flag just past the __jmp_buf indicating whether the signal masked was saved, and act on that flag. however, early versions of musl did not have space past the __jmp_buf for the non-sigjmp_buf version of jmp_buf, so our setjmp cannot store such a flag without risking clobbering memory on (very) old binaries.
2015-03-11add aarch64 portSzabolcs Nagy-0/+19
This adds complete aarch64 target support including bigendian subarch. Some of the long double math functions are known to be broken otherwise interfaces should be fully functional, but at this point consider this port experimental. Initial work on this port was done by Sireesh Tripurari and Kevin Bortis.
