ARM semihosting HEAPINFO results wrote to wrong address
Status in QEMU:
This affects latest development branch of QEMU.
According to the ARM spec of the HEAPINFO semihosting call:
> the PARAMETER REGISTER contains the address of a pointer to a four-
field data block.
However, QEMU treated the PARAMETER REGISTER as pointing to a four-
field data block directly.
Here is a simple program that can demonstrate this problem:
This code links with newlib with semihosting mode, which will call the
HEAPINFO SVC during crt0 routine. When running in QEMU (make run), it
may crash the program either because of invalid write or memory
curruption, depending on the compiled program structure.
Also refer to my discussion with newlib folks:
