           Summary: clang chews through stack space
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs

Been tracking down a memory exhaustion problem in automatically generated code
with clang which does not occur with gcc.

The following code shows our problem:

#include <stdio.h>

#define X1(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X2(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X3(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X4(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X5(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X6(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X7(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define X8(x) if(i) { x } else { x }
#define ARRAY { int x[4000]; printf("%ld\n", (y - x)); }
  void f(int i)
int y[1];


  int main(int argc, char** argv) {

With no optimisation, gcc outputs 4000 while clang outputs 1024002. if I
increase the depth 2 more steps (the actual size we use in practice), a
clang-compiled executable just segfaults, while the gcc one works happily.
