[interprocess] atomic_cas32 inline assembly wrong on ppc32

Reported by: Petr Machata <pmachata@…> Owned by: Ion Gaztañaga
Milestone: To Be Determined Component: interprocess
Version: Boost 1.54.0 Severity: Problem
Keywords: Cc:


This shows itself as a number of failures in test suite, some of which include test cases spinning infinitely. The problem (as discovered by Jaroslav Škarvada and reported in Red Hat bugzilla ) is in inline assembly in atomic_cas32. The comparison is done against "with" and the new value is "cmp". The attached patch swaps the order of arguments passed to the inline assembly block so that they match the order of incoming function arguments, which fixes the problem.

Thanks for the patch. It seems that most(all?) Boost regression tests are executed in Intel CPUs so this might be quite old.
