            Bug ID: 21435
           Summary: LLVM no longer honours -stack-alignment=4
           Product: libraries
           Version: trunk
          Hardware: PC
                OS: All

LLVM stoped honouring 

This can easily be reproduced with the attached bug1347703.ll doing

  $ llc -o - -mtriple=i686-pc-mingw32 -mattr=+avx -stack-alignment=4
bug1347703.ll | grep '\<and.*[er]sp'

which produces nothing showing that the stack pointer is never aligned.

However if one disables frame-pointer elimination then it works again:

-disable-fp-elim -o - -mtriple=i686-pc-mingw32 -mattr=+avx -stack-alignment=4
bug1347703.ll | grep '\<and.*[er]sp'
    andl    $-32, %esp
    andl    $-32, %esp


Which doesn't seem the right behavior -- using the frame-pointer to align the
stack seems an implementation detail -- there are probably other ways, and if
frame-pointer is indeed necessary it should be automatically employed as

This regression happened between LLVM release 3.2 and release 3.3.  I strongly
suspect r168627 --
