Description Nathan Bates 2007-06-04 18:10:02 UTC
This pertains to GNU gcc Thread Local Storage.

The storage class specifier "__thread" malfunctions
if the thread-local variable is a C++ static class member.
The variable apparently had a garbage value.
The same code works ok on Linux.

It will work ok on FreeBSD as an ordinary global variable (C extern linkage).

I used g++ 3.4.6 on FreeBSD 6.2.

How-To-Repeat: Write pthreads code where two threads
access a static class member in Thread Local Storage.

Responsible Changed
From-To: freebsd-i386->freebsd-bugs

This does not sound i386-specific.
Comment 2 Pedro F. Giffuni freebsd_committer 2016-06-12 16:34:39 UTC
We don't really support gcc-3.4.6 (or FreeBSD 6.2) anymore, please check a newer version of FreeBSD with clang.
