Bug#800321: gcc-5: [mips64el] miscompilation caused by -fexpensive-optimizations

Package: gcc-5
Version: 5.2.1-17
Severity: important
Control: affects -1 ffmpeg
X-Debbugs-Cc: debian-mips@lists.debian.org

Dear Maintainer,

ffmpeg 7:2.8-1 failed to build on mips64el due to a test failure.

I investigated the problem and it turns out to be caused by a compiler bug
that can be avoided by using '-fno-expensive-optimizations'.

Attached is a reduced test case:
$ ls
Makefile  main.c  test.c
$ make
cc -fPIC -O2 -fno-expensive-optimizations -c -o working.o test.c
cc -shared -o libworking.so working.o
cc -o working main.c -L. -lworking
cc -fPIC -O2 -c -o broken.o test.c
cc -shared -o libbroken.so broken.o
cc -o broken main.c -L. -lbroken
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./working || true
A f00000100 101
B f00000100 101
LD_LIBRARY_PATH=. ./broken || true
A f00000100 101

In the broken version the '& 0xFFFFFFFF' in following line gets ignored:
    if (*last == ((state | buf) & 0xFFFFFFFF)) 

This also fails with gcc-4.9 and gcc-4.8, so it is a longstanding problem.

Best regards,
