Description Geoff Smith 2005-05-07 06:14:00 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.3.0)
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs
OS:                Linux

The "BOUND" (x86) instruction is not implemented.  The IBM Rational Ada compiler uses this instruction (albeit rarely) for bounds checking.

valgrind --version :  valgrind-2.4.0
uname -a           :  Linux alpo 2.4.21-27.0.1ELcustom #2

I'm astounded.  It has been a long while since that was a useful
instruction to use...  Shouldn't be too hard to implement as a helper

In answer to Julian's question on bug 112432 about what a bounds check failure should look like in userspace the answer (from a quick examination of the kernel source) is a SEGV of some sort.
Comment 3 Julian Seward 2005-10-06 20:15:38 UTC
Geoff, is this still alive?  If yes, can you supply a test case
which checks that upon delivery of the resulting signal, you
have enough context (faulting address, or whatever) that the
compiler's code can recover in the way it wants.

Hi, I work for Geoff Smith (the originator of this bug report)
I have put together a simple test case (below)
When I run the program I get:
windfall-apex%  bound
in handler
info->si_signo = 11
info->si_errno = 0
info->si_code = 128
context.uc_mcontext.gregs[12] = 5

When I run it under valgrind 2.4:
