Please add support for Aarch64 (64-Bit ARM)
User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux x86_64) AppleWebKit/537.4 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/22.0.1229.94 Safari/537.4 Steps to reproduce: Tried to compile NSPR for Aarch64 (64-Bit ARM). Instructions howto build for Aarch64 is here: https://wiki.linaro.org/HowTo/ARMv8/OpenEmbedded Note that the meta-aarch64 layer includes already the patch attached to this bug. Actual results: NSPR does not compile on 64-Bit ARM. With the attached patch, (originally written by Al Stone, With my additions and fixes) NSPR compiles for Aarch64, and passes most testsuite tests. The remaining failing tests: multiwait FAILED - timeout due to slow emulator nameshm1 FAILED semaerr FAILED - Both hang on semaphore issues. Sema and semaping tests pass. servr_kk FAILED servr_uk FAILED servr_ku FAILED servr_uu FAILED - These tests provide no useful debug output foreign FAILED provider FAILED - These hardcode thread stack size 64K, which is less than the minimum stack size on Aarch64. Theses tests are broken in this regard and should take in account PTHREAD_STACK_MIN size.
Thank you for the patch. I will take a look at it.

I listed the new aarch64 code right below the arm code because they are closely related. We should look into the _MD_MINIMUM_STACK_SIZE issue. I still checked in your _MD_MINIMUM_STACK_SIZE change, but we should try to avoid it. Perhaps the test program should not specify a stack size? http://mxr.mozilla.org/nspr/ident?i=_MD_MINIMUM_STACK_SIZE Patch checked in on the NSPR trunk (NSPR 4.9.6).

Riku: Thanks for the reply. OK, we'll deal with the 'foreign' and 'provider' tests in another bug. Marked the bug fixed.
