Subject: AMD cpu bug update -- AMD confirms!
Date: Monday 5th March 2012 19:27:44 UTC (over 6 years ago)
AMD has confirmed the cpu bug that I analyzed. I am going to quote the first paragraph. They gave me some more info and will be updating their revision guide. To avoid any confusion (so they can finalize their wording for the entry they will be putting in the revision guide) I'm just including the confirmation here. quote>> "AMD has taken your example and also analyzed the segmentation fault and the fill_sons_in_loop code. We confirm that you have found an erratum with som e AMD processor families. The specific compiled version of the fill_sons_in_loop code, through a very specific sequence of consecutive back-to-back pops and (near) return instructions, can create a condition where the process or incorrectly updates the stack pointer." <
