scons: Disable optimizations only for gcc-4.2
gcc-4.2's optimizer has a strange bug where it looses code from inner loops in certain situations. For example, if the appearently innocent looking code below is compiled with gcc-4.2 -S -O1, the inner loop's code is missing from the outputed assembly. struct Size { unsigned width; }; struct Command { unsigned length; struct Size sizes[32]; }; extern void emit_command(void *command, unsigned length); void create_surface( struct Size size, unsigned faces, unsigned levels) { struct Command cmd; unsigned face; unsigned level; cmd.length = faces*levels*sizeof(cmd.sizes[0]); for(face = 0; face < faces; ++face) { for(level = 0; level < levels; ++level) { cmd.sizes[face*levels + level] = size; // This should generate a shrl statement, but the whole for body // disappears in gcc-4.2 -O1/-O2/-O3! size.width >>= 1; } } emit(&cmd, sizeof cmd.length + cmd.length); } Note that this is not specific to MinGW's gcc-4.2 crosscompiler (the version typically found in debian/ubuntu's mingw32 packages). gcc-4.2 on Linux also displays the same error. gcc-4.3 and above gets this correctly though. Updated MinGW debian packages with gcc-4.3 are available from
