Description Mihai Donțu 2021-04-28 20:16:59 UTC
I have been trying to emerge x86_64-w64-mingw32 via crossdev for a while now, as suggested by the app-emulation/wine-vanilla[mingw] ebuild. The build failed with gcc 10.2, but surprisingly it did not affect the emerge of wine-vanilla. Today I gave it another shot with gcc 11.1 and after removing -fstack-clash-protection from make.conf (causes ICE) I got stuck here and decided to file a bug:

In file included from /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/11.1.0/include/x86gprintrin.h:27,
                 from /usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/11.1.0/include/x86intrin.h:27,
                 from /var/tmp/portage/cross-x86_64-w64-mingw32/mingw64-runtime-8.0.0/temp/tmproot/include/intrin.h:73,
                 from intrincs/rdtsc.c:7:

__rdtsc is a new gcc11 mingw64-runtime issue

Unsure if above patch is complete/proper for gcc11, haven't took the time to look into this.
Comment 5 Mihai Donțu 2021-04-28 21:38:44 UTC
The patch worked. Thank you!
Comment 6 Sergei Trofimovich (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2021-04-28 21:42:26 UTC
'#if !__has_builtin(__rdtsc)' is a nasty check. I think the original intent is to check if compiler (MSVC) provides __rdtsc builtin.

Instead it gets fooled by a (incompatible) compat define: 

/usr/lib/gcc/x86_64-w64-mingw32/11.1.0/include/ia32intrin.h:110: note: macro "__rdtsc" defined here
  110 | #define __rdtsc()               __builtin_ia32_rdtsc ()

That effectively checks for __builtin_ia32_rdtsc.

Given it's a namespace clash simplest would be to not rely on gcc's __rdtsc.

    dev-util/mingw64-runtime: fix build against gcc-11 (__rdtsc clash)
    gcc-11 defines __rdtsc as a macro:
        // include/ia32intrin.h:110
        #define __rdtsc() __builtin_ia32_rdtsc ()
    and causes build failure:
          error: macro "__rdtsc" passed 1 arguments, but takes just 0
           15 | unsigned __int64 __rdtsc(void)
              |                              ^
    Let's avoid __rdtsc definition on systems with #define __rdtsc present.
    There is still a chance that it might be a '#define __rdtsc __rdtsc'.
    We'll revisit it then.
