Thanks to access given by Thibaut, I was able to tackle this problem,
but I now need a hppa wizard help to solve.
What is happening is that the assembly code in
xpcom/reflect/xptcall/src/md/unix/xptcstubs_asm_parisc_linux.s relies on
the caller (nsXPTCStubBase::Stubnnn, in xptcstubs_pa32.cpp in the same
directory) stack frame size to get the "this" variable from it.
The problem is that depending on the level of optimization,
nsXPTCStubBase::Stubnnn can have a zero-sized stack frame size: since
"this" is not used, there is no reason for gcc not to do that.
What I feel should be the proper fix for this would be to pass "this" to
the SharedStub function so that it doesn't rely on the stack frame size,
but I don't know hppa assembly enough to do the necessary changes to the
A quick workaround is to build the xptcstubs_pa32.cpp without
Could someone take a quick look into this?
