Features:

  • All GCC 10.2 features.

Known changes and issues:

  • Doing IPA on CMSE generates a linker error:
    The linker will error out when resulting object file contains a symbol for the clone function with the __acle_se prefix that has a non-local binding. Issue occurs when compiling binaries for M-profile Secure Extensions where the compiler may decide to clone a function with the cmse_nonsecure_entry attribute. Although cloning nonsecure entry functions is legal, as long as the clone is only used inside the secure application, the clone function itself should not be seen as a secure entry point and so it should not have the __acle_se prefix. A possible workaround for this is to add a 'noclone' attribute to functions with the 'cmse_nonsecure_entry'. This will prevent GCC from cloning such functions.
  • GCC can hang or crash if the input source code uses MVE Intrinsics polymorphic variants in a nested form. The depth of nesting that triggers this issue might vary depending on the host machine. This behaviour is observed when nesting 7 times or more on a high-end workstation. On less powerful machines, this behaviour might be observed with fewer levels of nesting. This issue is reported in https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=91937

Features:
* All GCC 10.2 features

Tests:
* Targets:
  + Variety of Cortex-M0/M0+/M3/M4/M7/A9 boards
  + Qemu
  + Arm Fast Models

Notable changes in 2020-q4-major release:
* Added support for:
  + M-profile Vector Extension (MVE) assembler and intrinsics
  + Custom Datapath Extension (CDE)
  + Cortex-M55

* Fixed issue where load or store of __fp16 type together with MVE
  might generate invalid code.

* Fixed issue https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=91816
  where the compiler was generating a conditional branch in Thumb2,
  which was too far for b{cond} to handle.

* Fixed internal errors in arm and aarch64 GAS when assembling code
  that attempts a negative .org.

* Fixed issue https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=96191
  where the -fstack-protector option was leaving the canary value
  in a temporary register on return from the function.

Known issues:
* Doing IPA on CMSE generates a linker error:
The linker will error out when resulting object file contains a symbol for
the clone function with the __acle_se prefix that has a non-local binding.
  Issue occurs when compiling binaries for M-profile Secure Extensions where
the compiler may decide to clone a function with the cmse_nonsecure_entry
attribute.
  Although cloning nonsecure entry functions is legal, as long as the clone
is only used inside the secure application, the clone function itself should
not be seen as a secure entry point and so it should not have the __acle_se
prefix.
  A possible workaround for this is to add a 'noclone' attribute to
functions with the 'cmse_nonsecure_entry'. This will prevent GCC from cloning
such functions.
