Source: mariadb-10.3
Version: 1:10.1.37-1
Severity: normal
User: debian-powerpc at lists.debian.org
Usertags: powerpc


On some 32-bit targets like mips or powerpc, the mariabdb-10.3 build fails

 error: #error atomic ops for this platform are not implemented

This is because the test for C++11 atomics in configure.cmake fails:

 int main()
  long long int var= 1;
  long long int *ptr= &var;
  return (int)__atomic_load_n(ptr, __ATOMIC_SEQ_CST);

Trying to build this code on ppc64 works fine:

glaubitz at redpanda:~/mariadb$ g++ cpp11test.cpp -o cpp11test
glaubitz at redpanda:~/mariadb$ ./cpp11test

On powerpc, we need -latomic otherwise the compilation fails
and HAVE_GCC_C11_ATOMICS is set to false:

root at kapitsa:~# g++ cpp11test.cpp -o cpp11test
/usr/bin/ld: /tmp/ccyivhlO.o: in function `main':
cpp11test.cpp:(.text+0x48): undefined reference to `__atomic_load_8'
collect2: error: ld returned 1 exit status
root at kapitsa:~#

root at kapitsa:~# g++ cpp11test.cpp -o cpp11test -latomic
root at kapitsa:~#

I have no idea, however, how to tell cmake here to pass -latomic, I'm
not a cmake expert.
