gcc 4.8.0 and radeon r300 RS690

Because it was my post that first raised this issue, I wanted to let people know that this still exists. To rule out my build process, I used the stock slackware-current 3.8.8 kernel-huge-smp kernel and modules that were just updated. Kernel oops. Rebuild using gcc 4.7.2 and the kernel-huge-smp config file and everything is fine. I'm hoping that with gcc 4.8.1 everything will right itself. Anyone else with a 5-6 year old laptop that can test this?
Mine is a HP 6715b. Its not the individual machine because I have 2 of these models and both behave the same. I've compiled every 3.x.x kernel as they've come out without issue. If its the same story with 3.9.0 kernel I'll inform the radeon devs.


Oops from the original 3.8.6 try is attached.

You're assuming that it's a compiler bug. It might very well be a bad section of ati-driver or kernel code that is working purely by accident on the kernel compiled with the older gcc and that changes introduced with the newer gcc have merely exposed it.

This is a complete stab in the dark but the new 'aggressive-loop-optimizations" thing has been seen to expose problems elsewhere when encountering badly written code. Might be worth trying to compile with -fno-aggressive-loop-optimizations (I'm not certain but it looks like the makefile provides a KCFLAGS= for adding additional user supplied CFLAGS).
