           Summary: error: SSE register return with SSE disabled (with
           Product: new-bugs
           Version: trunk
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: new bugs

Compiling floating-point code with -mno-mmx, clang aborts as follows:

[cyclsvl05]$ cat bug.i
double bar (void);
double foo()
  return bar()+1.0;

/u/nomura/dl/Installed/clang/bin/clang -c -O0 -mno-mmx -w bug.i
fatal error: error in backend: SSE register return with SSE disabled

gcc would issue a similar error if -mno-sse were specified.  

But gcc with -mno-mmx appears to proceed happily using SSE registers,
for example:

[cyclsvl05]$ gcc -v

        movq    %rsp, %rbp
        subq    $16, %rsp
        call    bar
        movapd  %xmm0, %xmm1
        movsd   .LC0(%rip), %xmm0
        addsd   %xmm1, %xmm0
        movsd   %xmm0, -8(%rbp)
        movq    -8(%rbp), %rax
        movq    %rax, -8(%rbp)
        movsd   -8(%rbp), %xmm0

I'm using a sync of clang+llvm from a couple days ago.

Is clang doing the right thing by aborting?  (If so, what clang options
would you suggest to obtain compatibility with gcc and -mno-mmx?)  Thanks.
