Re: Stack alignement with pthreads

When running no thread, the code produced by gcc is correct and the same code
breaks as soon as it is executed from a thread. Thus I was wondering if
something somewhere in the netbsd libc/libpthread/kernel wouldn't be pushing an
int/pointer behind the back of gcc. gcc generates codes that makes no runtime
checks on the stack alignment: it just makes sure that main() is correct, so
this fails if some other code breaks the alignment behind the scene.

Note that I don't have this problem with gcc-4.1.2 running under an i386-linux

Yes, makes sense. I'll do that soon. Recompiling libpthread with a new gcc will
be enough or should I recompile more userland? libc?
