Doc for CG14 (aka SX) graphics

Hello all!

Here is a little exchange from the OpenSolaris XWindow mailing list:

I have checked that URL; it seems that nobody has asked for release of
docs/drivers for the cgfourteen (aka SX) graphics found in SS10s and
SS20s.

It also seems that Sun will actually start looking for requested stuff;
and has in some cases succeeded in supplying the desired information.

Since I know that several readers of this list are interested in docs
on cgfourteen/SX, maybe someone could ask for it in the web form given
at the above URL?  I don't think you have to be affiliated with an
entity such as TNF; just an individual query would suffice.

I know all this; I was just trying to be helpful without digging
into the gory details.

Well, judging from list of requested documents at the quoted URL
you might want to consider sending another request via that web form.

I've just done that. Others might want to as well.

atomic_cas_ulong_ni segmentation fault

I'm running 32-bit sparc port of NetBSD 4.99.55 with netbsd_sun4u kernel on 
Ultra 10. The userland and kernel were compiled 
with '-Os -mcpu=ultrasparc -mvis'

#include <stdio.h>
int main(void)
{
	printf("hey\n");
	return 0;
}

If I compile the above program with 'gcc test.c -lpthread' and then run the 
executable, it dies with SEGV.

Running gdb on the core file outputs the following:

Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault
#0 0x40117324 in atomic_cas_ulong_ni () from /usr/lib/libc.so.12
...

Anyones knows what's going on?

Please provide:

- backtrace
- dissasembly of atomic_cas_ulong_ni() (disassemble atomic_cas_ulong_ni)
- registers (info reg)

Thanks,
Andrew

Thanks. I made a commit to common/lib/libc/arch/sparc/atomic/Makefile.inc,
revision 1.8. Could you give it a go with a new libc containing that
revision?

I haven't cleaned the object dir, coz I don't think it needs to be done. I've 
updated that particular Makefile, but now I'm getting the following error. 
Looks like you're missing .endif somewhere...

nbmake: "/opt/src/lib/libc/../../common/lib/libc/arch/sparc/atomic/Makefile.inc" 
line 33: 1 open conditional
nbmake: Fatal errors encountered -- cannot continue

nbmake: stopped in /opt/src/lib/libc
