[llvm-dev] [cfe-dev] Orc Windows C++

It’s pretty intermittent at the moment…sometimes I get the relocation overflow issue, sometimes I get another issue about BSS sections having no contents.

The source code to reproduce either is simple:

#include <iostream>

int main (int argc, char* argv[])

I’ve managed to reproduce the BSS section issue in clang consistently, and since that comes before terms of where it happens in the compilation / JIT’ing process, I can’t get to the part where I see the relocation issue in clang.exe rather than my own program.

clang.exe -c "Y:\Documents\Visual Studio 2013\Projects\NewProject\Source\main.cpp"
llvm-rtdyld.exe" -execute main.o -dylib=C:\Windows\System32\msvcr120d.dll

It also occurs with -mcmodel=large specified.

The exact output of the second command, llvm-rtdyld, is as follows...

Assertion failed: (Sec->Characteristics & COFF::IMAGE_SCN_CNT_UNINITIALIZED_DATA) == 0 && "BSS sections don't have contents!", file C:\llvm\llvm\lib\Object\COFFObjectFile.cpp, line 951

…the stack trace of which looks semantically the same as when I have that assertion triggered in my own program.

Relevant information:
- llvm, clang and compiler-rt revision 249038 from trunk
- built with the command (where ../llvm is the llvm source root) cmake -G "Visual Studio 12 2013 Win64" -DLLVM_INCLUDE_EXAMPLES=OFF -DLLVM_INCLUDE_TESTS=OFF -DLLVM_INCLUDE_DOCS=OFF -DLLVM_USE_CRT_DEBUG=MDd -DLLVM_USE_CRT_RELEASE=MD ../llvm
- VS2013 version 12.0.40629.00 Update 5

Running the same code without llvm-rtdyld.exe (i.e. non-JIT) does so without error.

Thanks very much for any response!

(Sorry for the slow reply, was trying to get something as minimal as possible for you to look at)
