[Openmp-commits] [PATCH] D11269: Patch out an (apparently unwarranted) fatal assertion in OpenMP runtime until preconditions are met

Compiling the code below with g++ and linking it to the LLVM OpenMP runtime compiled in debug mode trips an assertion that produces a fatal error. When the assertion is skipped, the program runs successfully to completion and produces the same answer as the sequential code. Intel will restore the assertion with a patch that fixes the issues that cause it to trip.

The program:

#include <inttypes.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <omp.h>

#define NTHREADS 8
#define NBOUND 40 

uint64_t result[NBOUND]; 

uint64_t fib(int n) 
  if (n < 2) return n;
  else return fib(n-1) + fib(n-2);

void testparallel()
#pragma omp parallel num_threads(NTHREADS) 
#pragma omp for
    for(int i = 0; i < NBOUND; i++)  result[i] = fib(40);

void teststatic()
#pragma omp parallel for schedule(static)
  for(int i = 0; i < NBOUND; i++) result[i] += fib(40);

int main(int argc, char **argv)
  int i;


  for(i=0;i< NBOUND;i++) printf("%lld ", result[i]);
