Bug#706207: gcc-4.6, gcc-4.7: invalid optimization when doing double -> int math and conversion (on big endian archs(?))

Package: gcc-4.6,gcc-4.7
Version: 4.6.3-15
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

this bug manifest itself on ia64, powerpc and s390x where gcc-4.6 is
used and the optmized code (-O2) fails to produce correct math

This code from libgd2:src/gd.c:clip_1d:

  *y1 -= m * (*x1 - mindim);


  m = (double) -0.050000
  *x1 = -200
  mindim = 0
  *y1 = 15

results in *y1 = 4, which is incorrect value, since it should be 5.

Most simple workaround, which allows gcc to produce correct value:

  *y1 -= (int)(m * (*x1 - mindim));

Assigning to some other variable also works ok:

  int t;
  t = m * (*x1 - mindim);
  *y1 -= t;

Compiling with -O0 also produces correct value.

gcc-4.7 is unfortunatelly also affected.

I just hope we don't compile the nuclear reactor controls with gcc :)
