Segmentation fault inside clBuildProgram




I am trying to run code with the Intel CPU runtime for OpenCL installed from l_opencl_p_18.1.0.015.tgz and am experiencing a segmentation fault inside clBuildProgram that shows up with the attached program. It does not always segfault, sometimes it hangs instead, rarely it completes without reporting any error. When it segfaults, the output is:


Stack dump:
0. Running pass 'Function Pass Manager' on module 'main'.
1. Running pass 'X86 DAG->DAG Instruction Selection' on function ''
Segmentation fault


When I run this in gdb, the backtrace shows:


Thread 1 "main" received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

The included hello.ll has been heavily reduced automatically to something that no longer makes sense, it has been reduced to the minimum that I could find to reproduce this particular segmentation fault. The generated hello.bc still passes spir_verifier's checks, which prints:


According to this SPIR Verifier, hello.bc is a valid SPIR module.


I am running on Ubuntu.


Is this a bug in the OpenCL runtime, some incompatibility with something on my system, or is there something invalid in the SPIR that I will need to take care to avoid, something that is not detected by the SPIR verifier?


Thank you,
