Description Richard Dunkley 2014-11-17 14:39:06 UTC
I am using Petalinux 2014.2 to cross-compile Mono for the Zynq-7000 SoC from Xilinx. It uses GCC v4.8.1 (Sourcery Codebench Lite 2013.11-53). The build fails stating that __clear_cache is implicitly declared. My understanding is ___builtin__clear_cache replaced __clear_cache in 4.3.1 or later.

The following code in mono/mini/mini-arm.c (line 1154) fails to compile:

#elif __APPLE__
    sys_icache_invalidate(code, size);
#elif __GNUC_PREREQ(4, 1)
    __clear_cache (code, code + size);

The following modification works:

#elif __APPLE__
    sys_icache_invalidate(code, size);
#elif __GNUC_PREREQ(4, 3)
    __builtin___clear_cache (code, code + size);
#elif __GNUC_PREREQ(4, 1)
    __clear_cache (code, code + size);
