llvm: llvm-2.9svn r122379

Run any program with llvmpipe built with llvm-2.9svn. The following error appears.
prog: Unknown command line argument '-disable-mmx'.  Try: 'prog -help'

The error occurs with both 32-bit and 64-bit llvm.

The error does not occur with llvm-2.9svn r121711.

llvm-2.6 - good
llvm-2.7 - good
llvm-2.8 - good
llvm-2.9svn r121711 - good
llvm-2.9svn r122379 - bad
Comment 1 Vinson Lee 2010-12-21 17:13:02 UTC
The error is likely trigger by these llvm commits.

r122189 | lattner | 2010-12-19 12:19:20 -0800 (Sun, 19 Dec 2010) | 3 lines

now that generic vector types aren't selected onto MMX operations,
we don't need -disable-mmx anymore.

r122188 | lattner | 2010-12-19 12:12:58 -0800 (Sun, 19 Dec 2010) | 3 lines

now that generic vector types aren't selected onto MMX registers, these
tests don't need -disable-mmx.

    gallivm: Disable MMX-disabling code on llvm-2.9.
    The disable-mmx option was removed in llvm-2.9svn by revisions 122188
    and 122189.
    Fixes FDO bug 32564.

Verified fixed with llvm-2.9svn.

Thanks Vinson.
Comment 5 EoD 2011-04-19 17:04:09 UTC
As llvm-2.9 has been released I propose to merge this into the 7.10-branch.

My X server crashed after my upgrade today and it took me quite a while to figure out what's going wrong. Gentoo already uses this patch in their 7.10.2-r1 ebuild.
Comment 6 Jose Fonseca 2011-04-20 02:31:55 UTC
I've cherry-picked the relevant commit into 7.10.
