ID Summary State Reported In Release Target Release Workaround Release Notes
CODEGEN-2182 INTERNAL ERROR: opt2000 experienced a segmentation fault Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS The problem appears with a while-loop that places the increment or decrement ahead of the MAC. Work around it by using a for-loop, or by moving the increment/decrement to the end of the loop body (instead of in the while-loop predicate, for instance). A while-loop like while (n--) sum += *x++ * *y++; may cause the compiler to crash. Use a for-loop instead.
CODEGEN-2179 I16TOF32 or UI16TOF32 lost or cannot be generated Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS The compiler incorrectly modeled I16TOF32 and UI16TOF32. This had two detrimental effects: 1. If the compiler created one of these instructions with a memory operand and gave it post-increment addressing, it could be dropped as dead code, leading to incorrect results. 2. Some loops that should have used one of these instructions would instead sign extend the 16-bit integer and used I32TOF32 or UI32TOF32 instead.
CODEGEN-2176 RPTB block containing RPT is too small Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS This bug can occur when there is a small loop containing a smaller loop, where the smaller loop behaves like memset(foo, 0, n). Only the fill value zero will trigger this bug. The generated RPTB may be one byte too small to be legal, and the assembler will reject the RPTB.
CODEGEN-2171 C2000 compiler disables if conversion on mac Fixed C2000_17.6.0.STS
CODEGEN-2168 Incorrect use of MPYA overwrites T register, resulting in wrong computation Fixed C2000_17.6.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS The kill of register T was not being captured in the MPYA P,loc16,#16bit instruction causing a prior load to the T register to be erroneously overwritten by a subsequent MPYA P,loc16,#16bit instruction.
CODEGEN-2166 INTERNAL ERROR: lnk2000 failed to allocate memory Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS Compile with --disable:cla_scratchpad_overlay, or do not allow CLA functions to call any function in any section that may contain its own ancestor. CLA modules should have each function in its own text section, and CLA functions should absolutely not be recursive or mutually recursive in any way. For this test case, hand-coded CLA functions had two functions (A and C) in the same text section. A has a call to B, which is in a different text section. B has a call to C. This forms a cycle in the call graph, because the linker can only see sections and doesn't realize A and C are different functions. Due to a bug in the CLA scratchpad overlay optimization, this cycle would cause the linker to go into an infinite loop.
CODEGEN-2119 Stack usage assistant call graph misses callee relationship for some direct calls Fixed C2000_17.6.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS The Object File Display utility failed to detect function callees when generating call graph information for functions that contain nested blocks.
CODEGEN-2113 Hex utility mishandles space in directory name of output file Fixed C2000_17.6.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS Use directory names without spaces for output files. The hex utility did not correctly handle spaces in output directory and file names.
CODEGEN-2098 Temp filename collisions on Windows with many parallel invocations Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS In some cases with a large number of compilations in parallel on Windows, the compiler could create temporary files with colliding names, resulting in strange compilation failures.
CODEGEN-2060 Even though option --buffer_diagnostics is not used, compiler issues diagnostic that says it is deprecated Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS None The --buffer_diagnostics compiler option was deprecated as of MCU compilers v16.6.0.STS because this setting became the default behavior for the compiler. However, the option was passed to the linker and the linker issued a remark stating the option was deprecated.
CODEGEN-2053 Compiler incorrectly reorders struct assign for small, volatile structs with bit-fields Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS Use optimization level 0 or off (option --opt_level) For a very specific optimization, the optimizer may drop a volatile qualifier from a struct assignment. In some cases, the compiler may later perform an incorrect optimization, most commonly incorrectly reordering volatile assignments. This bug can only happen in a function compiled with optimization level 1 or higher which contains both of the following: 1) A struct assign where the destination is volatile, and the source is a known constant, and the struct contains a bit-field, and the struct is of size "int" or smaller. 2) Any bit-field access (read or write) other than as part of a struct assign or initialization expression. That is, the name of the bit-field is present in the access expression. Note that the optimizer can create this situation by inlining functions, so 1 and 2 might be in different functions in the source code. Consider a tree x = y where x and y are of type struct S. If the value of y is known at compile time (e.g. a const value), the optimizer will try to turn the struct constant into an integer constant (possibly combining bit-fields) and rewrite the tree to look like this: "(unsigned *)x = 32;" However, if y is volatile, that should be "*(volatile unsigned *)x = 32;" Because the access is not volatile, instruction scheduling could cause this instruction to drift past nearby volatile accesses.
CODEGEN-2050 Use of -o4 causes linker XML map file to have missing input_file entries Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS
CODEGEN-1976 Value of __cplusplus is wrong Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS If possible, use the -ps or --strict_ansi options. This mode will use the strict definition of __cplusplus, which is 199711L. Our parser mimicked G++ behavior for the value of this macro in relaxed ANSI mode. This reproduced a bug in G++ versions v.4.7 and v.4.3 that has since been fixed.
CODEGEN-1974 Remove --symdebug:coff from the compiler manual Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS
CODEGEN-1710 Illegal instruction selection for __byte_peripheral_32 on FPU32 Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS Try a lower level of optimization. For our test case, optimization levels lower than 3 did not expose the bug. However, this workaround may not help for all test cases. Although byte peripheral types are integral, when FPU32 device support is enabled, the compiler might store 32-bit integral values in floating point registers when CPU registers are unavailable. The compiler erroneously generates a MOVL instruction instead of a MOV32 instruction for moving 32-bit byte peripheral data between floating point registers and byte peripheral memory, if this data gets assigned to a floating point register.
CODEGEN-1709 Using #pragma INTERRUPT(HPI) crashes the compiler Fixed Besides not using #pragma INTERRUPT(HPI), there is no workaround. The compiler requires an update. Fixed a crash that occurs when using #pragma INTERRUPT(HPI)
CODEGEN-1705 Compiler documentation and RTS disagree on function names _TI_start_pprof_collection and _TI_stop_pprof_collection Fixed
CODEGEN-1656 Using --gen_profile_info does not work with -o4 Fixed C2000_17.6.0.STS C2000_17.6.0.STS Lower the optimization level to -o3. Previously, link time optimization failed when profiling options --gen_profile_info and use_profile_info were specified in combination with the --opt_level=4 option. The errors were because profiling options were not supported when used in combination with --opt_level=4. Application profiling during whole program optimization is now supported. Profiling options --gen_profile_info and --use_profile_info may now be combined with --opt_level=4.
CODEGEN-1329 Lower diagnostic about redefined opcode to a warning, when a compiler intrinsic is redefined Fixed C2000_17.3.0.STS Remove the #define or do not include the header file in assembly files. When a header file attempting to redefine an opcode name is included in assembly files, the assembler issues an error because it is not legal to redefine an opcode name. While this behavior is correct, it causes programs to fail to compile when some C2000 header files are included in assembly files due to the "#define eallow ..." in the header files.
