What is the cause of internal fault [0xabc3e8:410631]?

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)


The following code shows an example that generates this internal fault with ARM Compiler toolchain 4.1 build 631:


void foo(void* const pOut)
    unsigned char v[4];

    *(unsigned int*)pOut = (v[3] << 24)|(v[2] << 16)|(v[1] << 8)|v[0];

Command line:

# armcc -c --cpu=6 test.c -o test.o


Internal fault: [0xabc3e8:410631] in foo
Please contact your supplier.


The issue is triggered when using the --unaligned_access; a default option when building for certain processors or architecture, e.g. --cpu=6.  The internal fault only occurs in build 631 of armcc.


Please use a later version of the tools.
