Description ppw0 2023-11-23 05:12:50 UTC

example file

Steps to reproduce the bug:

 1. be in an x86 (i686) environment (chroot)
 2. use clang+lld as the default compiler
 3. emerge app-arch/gzip with "-Wl,--icf=all" in LDFLAGS
 4. attempt to compress a certain file with gzip

In the described environment, app-arch/gzip-1.12-r4 will cause a segmentation fault in the attempt to compress certain files. Removing "-Wl,--icf=all" will allow the compression to go through. I'm attaching an example file that gzip will fail on.

This happens also with app-arch/gzip-1.13.

And also with -Wl,--icf=safe.
