Subject: [PATCH] gcov,x86: Mark GCOV broken for x86
Date: Mon, 14 Jun 2021 12:17:21 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <YMcssV/n5IBGv4f0@hirez.programming.kicks-ass.net> (raw)


As recently discovered, there is no function attribute to disable the
-fprofile-generate instrumentation. As such, GCOV is fundamentally
incompatible with architectures that rely on 'noinstr' for correctness.

Until such time as that compilers have added a function attribute to
disable this instrumentation, mark GCOV as broken.
