mariadb-10.5: Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64: "_crc32_pclmul", "_crc32_pclmul_enabled"

Reported by: chrstphrchvz (Christopher Chavez) Owned by: michaelld (Michael Dickens)
Priority: Normal Milestone:
Component: ports Version: 2.6.3
Keywords: Cc:
Port: mariadb-10.5


10.6 (64-bit) build fails during linking (though it is unclear exactly where due to the build running with make -j7):

Undefined symbols for architecture x86_64:
  "_crc32_pclmul", referenced from:
      _my_checksum_init in libmysys.a(checksum.c.o)
  "_crc32_pclmul_enabled", referenced from:
      _my_checksum_init in libmysys.a(checksum.c.o)
ld: symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64

(I personally do not need this port.)

i've built mariadb-10.5 on 10.6.8 64-bit, and don't see this error.

And yet the buildbot just tried to build and had this error again. Hmm... something.

This appears to have something to do with the processor that is building this. The missing function is defined in this file crc32/crc32_x86.c That file is only included if the system can support the pclmulqdq instruction, according to this bit in mysys/CMakeLists.txt

  #Check for PCLMUL instruction (x86)
  int main()
    asm volatile (\"pclmulqdq \\$0x00, %%xmm1, %%xmm0\":::\"cc\");
    return 0;

    SET(MYSYS_SOURCES ${MYSYS_SOURCES} crc32/crc32_x86.c)

according to <> that instruction is available on Nehalem and greater processors, which I am using. So presumably the 10.6 buildbot is on something less than a Nehalem, and therefore fails.

The whole thing is controlled from mysys/checksum.c and I think that with a bit of thought, we could come up with a way to use the fallbacks.

It seems though that this symbol should be weak linked, and fall through to the final catch-all automatically.

I suspect that something with the weak-linking is not 100% right here.

So I can reproduce this on another SnowLeopard system I have with an older processor. I have a patch to fix this, and it looks likely to be upstreamable as well.

I can do a MacPorts patch as well -- attached.

@kencu: Given that this change impacts very few MP users, please finish up with MDB folks on the PR and then create a MP PR with the added patch that we can use in the interim until the next MDB 10.5 release is out. Thx for your sleuthing and work here, as always!

here's what upstream settled on; it works to fix this issue <>
