Hi,

My Debian "testing" build system updated the default version of 
arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc from 10.x to 11.x.  Building barebox in thumb-2 
mode for an ARMv7 (it's a SoCFPGA) with this compiler fails with 
assembler errors such as:

   CC      common/state/state_variables.o
{standard input}: Assembler messages:
{standard input}:1535: Error: selected processor does not support `rev 
r3,r3' in Thumb mode
{standard input}:1576: Error: selected processor does not support `rev 
r3,r3' in Thumb mode

Building in verbose mode (V=1) shows that "make" has selected the 
compile flags `-march=armv5t -Wa,-march=armv7-a` instead of the usual 
`-march=armv7-a`.

Looking a little deeper, all of the following lines in 
"arch/arm/Makefile" are failing to select the first option and 
defaulting to the second option (if any):

arch-$(CONFIG_CPU_64v8)		:= -D__LINUX_ARM_ARCH__=8 $(call 
cc-option,-march=armv8-a)
arch-$(CONFIG_CPU_32v7)		:=-D__LINUX_ARM_ARCH__=7 $(call 
cc-option,-march=armv7-a,-march=armv5t -Wa$(comma)-march=armv7-a)
arch-$(CONFIG_CPU_32v6)		:=-D__LINUX_ARM_ARCH__=6 $(call 
cc-option,-march=armv6,-march=armv5t -Wa$(comma)-march=armv6)
arch-$(CONFIG_CPU_32v5)		:=-D__LINUX_ARM_ARCH__=5 $(call 
cc-option,-march=armv5te,-march=armv4t)

The error from the compiler is:

cc1: error: ‘-mfloat-abi=hard’: selected architecture lacks an FPU

(Note: the error is only shown after tweaking the `try-run` command in 
"scripts/Kbuild.include" so that it does not send error output to 
"/dev/null".)

That error seems to be a change in behaviour between GCC 10.x and GCC 11.x.

At the point in the Makefile that the error occurs, the `-msoft-float` 
option has not been added to `KBUILD_CPPFLAGS` yet. That is done further 
down the Makefile except for `CONFIG_CPU_V8`.  I guess it needs to be 
added somewhere before problematic lines in the Makefile.  I'm not sure 
if `-msoft-float` is also needed for 64-bit ARMv8, but the error 
suggests it is required there too.

It probably is added from here:

arch-$(CONFIG_CPU_32v7)		:=-D__LINUX_ARM_ARCH__=7 $(call cc-option,-march=armv7-a,-march=armv5t -Wa$(comma)-march=armv7-a)

The check for -march=armv7-a fails for some reason so the fallback is used.

I've seen this when CC is a wrapper and already adds -mcpu=... to the
commandline. In that case gcc now complains about the combination and the
check fails.

Yes, I showed the exact failure resulting from the cc-option call 
further down my email:

cc1: error: ‘-mfloat-abi=hard’: selected architecture lacks an FPU

In my case, CC was set by this "build.sh" script:

#! /bin/sh
 

SRC="../barebox-de0-nano-soc" 

ARCH="arm"
CROSS_COMPILE=arm-linux-gnueabihf-
CC='$(CROSS_COMPILE)gcc-11'

make -C "$SRC" O=`pwd` ARCH="$ARCH" CROSS_COMPILE="$CROSS_COMPILE" 
CC="$CC" $*


so after expansion, CC=arm-linux-gnueabihf-gcc-11
