Illegal instruction in libiomp5 when upgrading from ipp 7.0.7

Hi all,
i am running an IPP based application on a GEODE cpu running a linux (debian etch) 32bit distribution.
With ipp up to 7.0.5 all is fine. I recently upgraded to IPP 7.0.7 and i get an illegal instruction at startup
the backtrace i get is the following:
(gdb) r

this is an unknown issue - both of these versions contain the same versions of threading libraries( libiomp ) if I remember exactly. you can check it by himself. what you were changing in your application after IPP's binaries were updated? Did you change linking line?

Hi Gennady,
executing a diff between the two libiomp5.so files returns a difference.
The scenario is the following
testapp links against testlib
testlib uses libspeech.a (from ipp-samples) that uses libipps and libippsc functions.
(libspeech was obviously recompiled from 7.0.5 and 7.0.7)
the code (and Makefile) of the testlibrary has not changed
the code (and Makefile) of the testapp has not changed.
besides from what i gather from stack trace this seems to happen before the testlib is being loaded...
let me know if you need further info

We cannot reproduce the issue on our side.can you give the reproducible test for us?

Hi Gennady,
the actual code can be reduced to a simple
#include
int main() {
std::cout << "Hello world" << std::endl;
return 0;
}
this simple code linked against libiomp5, libippcore
with the line: g++ -Wall -g test.cpp -L -liomp5 -lippcore -o test
it was compiled with gcc 4.1.2 (debian etch on geode) and works with ipp 7.0.5, but gives an illegal instruction with ipp 7.0.7

Hi Francesco,

Seeing fromthe simpletest code, it seems nothing to do with the libiomp5 (openmp library)and ipp libraries. But anyway, could you pleaseshow the gdb resultwhen run the "test-ipp707"?

(in the test code,the"test" is"test-ipp707", right?). and please export theOpenMP version alsoas below.
[U105439illegal]$ export KMP_VERSION=1
[U105439illegal]$ gdb test
Thanks

However i do not understand why you say it has nothing to do with iomp5 and ipp... the simple snippet does (almost) nothing and we get the illegal instruction only when is linked against libiomp5 and ipp. The stack trace shows how the calls from the loader are up to the libiomp malloc call (before any actual code is being run)
Or am i reading the stack trace wrong?
thanks

Hi Francesco,

Thansk for the test. i see. I assumed, if without libiomp5 and libippcore, the command: g++ -Wall -g test.cpp -o test should be work fine. sothe codehas nothing to do with libiomp5 and ipp.But the binary did.


Could you pleasetry the command :
1)g++ -Wall -g test.cpp -L -liomp5 -o test
2)g++ -Wall -g test.cpp -L -lippcore -liomp5-o test

andseeifthey can run?

We want to make sure if it is libiomp5 issue or ipp issue orthe combination's order?
and pleaseset environment export KMP_VERSION=1 before run them.

Best Regards,
Ying

Hello Francesco,

do you use standalone IPP package or Intel Composer 2011? did you update IPP verion only or Intel Composer too?

Hi Pavel,
i am using only IPP, the compiler has always been gcc 4.1.2

Francesco,

unfortunatelly I don't have appropriate HW to test your case. Could you help me and build 3 variant of application:
1) build your test application and link with libippcore.so only
2) build your test application and link with libiomp5.so only
3) extend your test application to add:

extern int omp_get_num_procs (void);
.....
main()
{
....
int p= omp_get_num_procs();
....
}

and link it with libiomp5.so only

Thanks, Pavel

Hi Pavel,
as you can see from my post #10 case 2) was already tested and it printed the correct string
i tried now also case 1) and case 3) and the results are:
case 1: i get the illegal instruction
case 3: i could not test on the geode board since it did not compile
vm-etch-dev32# cat ipp_test_intel_get_procs.cpp
#include

extern int omp_get_num_procs (void);

int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
int p = omp_get_num_procs();
std::cout << "testing ipp: no of procs is" << p << std::endl;
return 0;
}

vm-etch-dev32# g++ -Wall -g ipp_test_intel_get_procs.cpp -L./ -liomp5 -o ipp_test_get_procs

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

to sum it up:
vm-etch-dev32# cat ipp_test.cpp
#include

int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
std::cout << "testing ipp" << std::endl;
return 0;
}

the one with the omp_get_num_procs() did not compile

Hi Francesco,

sorry to disturb you the right source is:

#include

extern "C" {
extern int omp_get_num_procs (void);
}

int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
int p = omp_get_num_procs();
std::cout << "testing ipp: no of procs is" << p << std::endl;
return 0;
}

g++ test.cpp -o test -L /nfs/site/proj/ipp/build/ipp/ipp70gold-20120406-7-0-0205-105/comp_lib/linux32 -liomp5 -lpthread

one more question: why you don't link pthread library in your tests? libiomp5.so required pthread library:

g++ test.cpp -o test -L /nfs/site/proj/ipp/build/ipp/ipp70gold-20120406-7-0-0205-105/comp_lib/linux32 -liomp5

/nfs/site/proj/ipp/build/ipp/ipp70gold-20120406-7-0-0205-105/comp_lib/linux32/libiomp5.so: undefined reference to `pthread_atfork'

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

Hi Pavel,
here is the result with the changed code:
vm-etch-dev32# cat ipp_test_intel_get_procs.cpp
#include
extern "C" {
extern int omp_get_num_procs (void);
}
int main(int argc, char** argv)
{
int p = omp_get_num_procs();
std::cout << "testing ipp: no of procs is" << p << std::endl;
return 0;
}
vm-etch-dev32# g++ -Wall -g ipp_test_intel_get_procs.cpp -L./ -liomp5 -o ipp_test_get_procs
etch:/tmp/ipp-illegal-instruction-test# ./ipp_test_get_procs
Illegal instruction
so it seems that calling omp_get_num_procs triggers the illegal instruction problem (on 7.0.7)
as per the libpthread, i don't know why you get that error, g++ automatically links libpthread on my machines:
etch:/tmp/ipp-illegal-instruction-test# ldd ./ipp_test_get_procs
linux-gate.so.1 => (0xb7fe8000)
libiomp5.so => /tmp/ipp-illegal-instruction-test/libiomp5.so (0xb7f2a000)

Hi Francesco,

so the problem is in libiomp5 library - it is Intel compiler OpenMP library and we will address the problem to the compiler. Thank you very much for your help!!!

To avoid the problem right now I recommend you to use not threaded variant of IPP libraries: link your application with libipp{domain}_l.a libraries - they don't depend on libiomp5 library, I hope it will be ok for you.

Hello Francesco,
It's not clear to me if your Geode processor supports SSE and/or MMX instructions. If it does not, you might try telling the linker(via gcc) that you're compiling for only a Pentium classtarget, by using
-march=pentium.

Do you still see the error if you add '-m32 -march=pentium' to your compilation command?

I don't have a Geode processor system, but on a Pentiumsystem using g++ 4.1, the program runs normally. I also added '-m32' to generate 32-bit code, as the default on my system is to generate 64-bit code. You shouldn't need that on your 32-bit system (but it can't hurt).

> g++ --version g++ (GCC) 4.1.0 (SUSE Linux)

> g++ U105439.cpp -liomp5 -m32 -march=pentium && ./a.out

testing ipp: no of procs is 2

Hi Patrick,
i will do the test you mentioned, however... if the problems lies in the libiomp5.so library and not in my code, how does that affect the code produced by gcc? does the linker inform somehow the shared lib about the architecture?
thanks
-- Add --
i did the test, nothing changed at all
