    SubjectRe: [CRYPTO]: Miscompiling sha256.c by gcc 3.2.3 and arch pentium3,4
    I've narrowed the problem - it seems to be a specific optimisation bug with
    gcc-3.2.3-24 that comes with RedHat 3ES. The problem is not kernel
    related (sorry!)
    as the guts of the file exhibits the same problem when compiled in user
    (All the non-sha256 test vectors in tcrypt.ko pass BTW.)

    The older gcc32 that comes with Fedora Cora 1 and the gcc33 there get it

    For the actual files please check bug #114610 in
    - the bug report includes sha256.c, tcrypt.c, and types.h necessary to
    the problem in user space.
