Inconsistent LAPACKE_sgels results across different hardware

While running tests between our Atom test machine and our i7 test machine, I noticed that LAPACKE_sgels() is giving different results on different hardware. One of our unit tests was supposed to verify that LAPACKE_sgels() would return something other than 0 (success) for a least squares problem with no solution. I've extracted the code below:

#include <iostream>
#include "mkl_lapacke.h"

int main() {

   float a[6] = { 2, -2, -1, 1, 0, 0 };

   float b[3] = { 1, 0, -1 };

   int status = LAPACKE_sgels(LAPACK_ROW_MAJOR,
                              'N',
                              3,               // rows
                              2,               // columns
                              1,               // nrhs
                              a,               // input
                              2,               // lda
                              b,               // vector
                              1);              // ldb

   std::cout << "Status: " << status << std::endl;

   return 0;
}

I compile the code with the following:

g++ -o mkl-test mkltest.cpp -I/opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2016.0.109/linux/mkl/include -Wl,--no-as-needed -L/usr/local/lib -L/opt/intel/compilers_and_libraries_2016.0.109/linux/mkl/lib/intel64  -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_core -lmkl_sequential -lpthread

On my i7, I get status is equal to 0, on my Atom, I get status equal to 2. Does anyone know why?

Eric, Could you give Atom CPU specific? ( Specification and supported instruction sets)

Sure. The Atom is an Intel Atom CPU E3845 @ 1.91 GHz. Flags (from /proc/cpuinfo) are:

fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36 clflush dts acpi mmx fxsr sse sse2 ss ht tm pbe syscall nx rdtscp lm constant_tsc arch_perfmon pebs bts rep_good nopl xtopology nonstop_tsc aperfmperf pni pclmulqdq dtes64 monitor ds_cpl vmx est tm2 ssse3 cx16 xtpr pdcm sse4_1 sse4_2 movbe popcnt tsc_deadline_timer aes rdrand lahf_lm 3dnowprefetch arat epb dtherm tpr_shadow vnmi flexpriority ept vpid tsc_adjust smep erms

The i7 is an Intel Core i7-4650U CPU @ 1.70GHz. Flags (from /proc/cpuinfo) are:

Is that what you need?

Yes, thanks. I see the problem on my side too and check the reason of that. we will back soon. thanks for the test.
