Subject: Re: [EXTERNAL] C++ segfault on riscv64

Sorry for the confusing post. I get the same behavior on qemu for both riscv64 and riscv32. I posted output from riscv32.

Here is the C++ code:
$ cat
#include <iostream>
int main() {
std::cout << "Hello\n";
return 0;

Subject: [EXTERNAL] [musl] C++ segfault on riscv64

I’m getting segfaults with musl for C++ code on riscv64. I have tested mipsel using qemu user mode as described below and found no issues.

I’m cross-compiling using the latest riscv64-linux-musl-cross.tgz (23-Nov-2021) from on x86_64/Fedora 35. I have confirmed that I get the following behavior for both riscv64 hardware and qemu user mode.

C is fine:

$ cat hello.c
int main(int argc, char **argv) {
return 0;
$ riscv32-linux-musl-gcc -static -g -Og hello.c -o hello
$ qemu-riscv32 hello

C++ segfaults:

$ riscv32-linux-musl-g++ -static -g -Og -o hello
$ qemu-riscv32 hello
Segmentation fault (core dumped)

GDB confirms the segfault in __dynamic_cast on both qmeu and riscv64 hardware. I’ll paste in the assembly below. Segfault occurs on the last instruction shown [ld      a5,0(a0)].

I’ve taken this as far as my skills allow. Any ideas what’s going on here or how to debug further?
