            Bug ID: 15434
           Summary: Alignment of float arrays in pentium3 mode
           Product: clang
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P
         Component: C++
          Assignee: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

Consider the following snippet:
#include <xmmintrin.h>
#include <stdio.h>

void f() {
 UNALIGN_TYPE unalign;
 float step[32];
 printf("%lld\n", (long long)(&step[0]) % 16);
 __m128 result[8];
 _mm_store_ps(&step[0], result[0]);

int main() {

$ g++ -DUNALIGN_TYPE=float t.cc -o t -m32 -march=pentium3 -O0 && ./t &&
~/build/llvm-opt/bin/clang++ -DUNALIGN_TYPE=float t.cc -o t -m32
-march=pentium3 -O0 && ./t
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

$ g++ -DUNALIGN_TYPE=double t.cc -o t -m32 -march=pentium3 -O0 && ./t &&
~/build/llvm-opt/bin/clang++ -DUNALIGN_TYPE=double t.cc -o t -m32
-march=pentium3 -O0 && ./t
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

GCC seems to 16-byte align the float arrays. Chandler mentioned that this thus
is part of the implicit ABI.
