SIGFPE with no exceptions currently enabled?

Reported by: Raymond Toy Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Core Version: 2013-01
Keywords: Cc:


While I've seen this SIGFPE issue before, I never tracked it down. Here is a repeatable case (from Carl):

    (defun test (x y)
      (declare (optimize (speed 3) (safety 0))
               (type (signed-byte 32) x y))
      (the (signed-byte 32) (truncate x y)))

Although the code lies to the compiler (the asserted return type of truncate is incorrect), the point is that (test #x-80000000 -1) causes the SIGFPE exception.

I believe sigfpe-handler was only expecting to handle FP exceptions. In this example, the division causes an overflow which generates the SIGFPE.

Fix ticket:72 : SIGFPE with no exceptions enabled

  • In the default case, check FOP to see if it's defined. This means it's a divide exception.
  • Also check to see if the offending instruction is a DIV or IDIV, which means we got an integer overflow. Return the appropriate values in this case.
