User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64; rv:68.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/68.0

Steps to reproduce:

export NSPR_INCLUDE_DIR=/usr/include/nspr
export NSPR_LIB_DIR=/usr/lib
export CFLAGS="-fstack-clash-protection -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -g -O2"
make USE_64=1

Actual results:

nss/lib/freebl/verified/Hacl_Chacha20Poly1305_256.c, and other source files relied on avx2 are not compiled

Expected results:

nss/lib/freebl/verified/Hacl_Chacha20Poly1305_256.c and other source files relied on avx2 are compiled.

nss test suite should be passed in x86_64 hardware regardless of avx2 support.

I have this patch that works for NSS 3.53, but the test suite is failing in NSS 3.53.1, I'm running NSS 3.53.1 testsuide without this patch.

Ben, can you review?
Attachment #9157527 - Flags: review?(bbeurdouche)

TEST_P(TlsExtensionTest13, HrrThenRemoveSignatureAlgorithms)

This one failed intermittently on SandyBrigde,
I enable the patch again and it doesn't fail now.

(In reply to J.C. Jones [:jcj] (he/him) [increased latency due to COVID-19] from comment #7)

this broke the Android ARM build:

mpi/mpcpucache.c:91:15: error: invalid output constraint '=a' in asm
: "=a"(*eax),

the compile command contains -Di386 which originates from:

makefile (from '../../coreconf/', line 74)


this is because of the include added in the commit; at the time in not all variables that affect have been initialized yet and so it sets x86 specific variables, which are not all overwritten when is included a second time.

the easiest fix for me would be to add ifneq ($(OS_TARGET),Android) around that, but it's possible that this breaks other non-Android configs too.

so includes which sets CC and includes which includes which sets GCC_VERSION...

i'm thinking the whole ifndef NSS_DISABLE_AVX2 block should be moved from to a different file that is read after include coreconf/$(OS_TARGET).mk, but i'm not sure where to move it to.

Thanks, Michael. Since there's been a release inbetween, I opened bug 1659727 for the regression.
