The following commit has a strange side-effect on gcc-4.5.2:
The new code in 'target-i386/translate.c' compiles just fine with gcc-4.4.4,
using less than 1GB of RAM, but gcc-4.5.2 uses the whole GB and then fills
up 2GB of swap space in addition while the machine grinds slowly to a halt.
I'm wondering whether this is
again (an upstream gcc bug, fix in-progress).
I'm hoping someone here might know how to find the source of the problem
so I can add some helpful details to my bug report.
1. If you compile with -fno-var-tracking does it still use lots
That flag fixes the memory problem, so my bug must be the same, I think.
2. (for the ludicrously enthusiastic only) build a gcc with the patches
listed in that bug report and see if the problem goes away...
I fetched the patch and found that it doesn't apply cleanly to the heavily
patched gentoo sources :(
Many thanks for the excellent clue.
