Description

AMPI lacks support for -tlsglobals on IBM POWER systems, which we will want to have in place before Summit and Sierra are up.

History

#1 Updated by Sam White over 2 years ago

Only slightly related: our QuickThreads package lacks support for POWER, but it looks like a more recent version of QuickThreads has it: https://github.com/lvijay/quickthreads

Edit: sadly that link no longer works :/

  • Target version changed from 6.8.1 to 6.9.0

#4 Updated by Sam White over 1 year ago

  • Target version deleted (6.9.0)

#5 Updated by Sam White over 1 year ago

  • Target version set to 6.9.1

The recently merged support for Boost uFcontext threads should have support for POWER8 but that needs to be verified. cmitls will still need to be updated for POWER anyway

I contacted the author and that link was not much/any more than a mirror of https://savannah.gnu.org/projects/quickthreads when maintenance stopped in 2012, and that version of the library is GPL-licensed anyway, meaning we can't use it.
