Subject: [PATCH] compiler-gcc*.h: remove inaccurate comment about 'asm goto' miscompiles
Date: Sat, 25 Oct 2014 15:09:42 -0700
Message-ID: <1414274982-14040-1-git-send-email-steven@uplinklabs.net> (raw)

The bug referenced by the comment in this commit was not completely fixed in
GCC 4.8.2, as I mentioned in a thread back in February[1]. The conclusion at
that time was to make the quirk unconditional until the bug could be found and
fixed in GCC. Unfortunately, when I submitted the patch (commit a9f18034)
I left a comment in that claimed the bug was fixed in GCC 4.8.2+.  This comment
is inaccurate, and should be removed.
