[VOLK] volk_profile failures

I compiled GNU Radio 3.7.7.1 natively on an ODROID XU3-Lite with Ubuntu
14.04.2 LTS. I ran volk_profile and got a lot of failures for various
embedded architectures. Any ideas what could be happening? Could it be
something with the compile flags I chose?

Hi Sean,

I didn’t read all of the debug info, but your symptoms are a result of
ORC doing bad things.

You can either uninstall ORC or upgrade to the latest release (0.4.23).
The
commit you really need is this one:
http://cgit.freedesktop.org/gstreamer/orc/commit/?id=acdaac31c648fd10f1bd0a49c4c33b483bb9c35c

If you choose to upgrade ORC let me know how it goes.

Cheers,
Nathan

​Ok, I will install ORC 0.4.23 from source. Is ORC involved with all the
other architectures that had failures?

Most likely.

What we’ve seen before is that ORC didn’t preserve registers according
to
ARM specifications. This basically results in unpredictable data
corruption. The commit I pointed to is the fix (vpush certain registers
if
used, then vpop after the routine).

The visible corruption is seen by corrupting the test tolerance. If you
look at ctest -V you should see that the "error"s are actually the same
result, but since tolerance gets corrupted the test erroneously is
false.
The only QA failures should be on kernels that have an ORC protokernel,
but
this bug can affect non-ORC protokernels for that kernel.

UHD built fine w/ ORC 0.4.23.

Just disable ORC Altogether in VOLK. Most of the kernels have
replacement
NEON proto-kernels now, anyways. Pass -DENABLE_ORC=False to cmake.

Tom

That makes sense. I installed ORC 0.4.23 and tried to recompile GR, but
the build is failing on Volk. GCC segfaults a couple times before
failing with an error on volk_16ic_magnitude_16i_a_orc_impl. Full output
here:

https://gist.github.com/nowls/2f6ddf5734e152ca21a7

ORC 0.4.23 was built with:

CFLAGS="-mcpu=cortex-a15.cortex-a7 -mtune=cortex-a15.cortex-a7
-mfpu=neon-vfpv4 -mfloat-abi=hard -funsafe-math-optimizations"

CPPFLAGS="-mcpu=cortex-a15.cortex-a7 -mtune=cortex-a15.cortex-a7
-mfpu=neon-vfpv4 -mfloat-abi=hard -funsafe-math-optimizations"

UHD built fine w/ ORC 0.4.23.
