BuildMI crashes on a certain probability on the exact same test

Dear there,

I'm trying to call BuildMI in my backend to add a machineinstr.

BuildMI(MBB, I, I->getDebugLoc(), TII->get(Vanilla::MOV),

But it gives me an error like this:

0 clang 0x000000010e61a56e
llvm::sys::PrintStackTrace(llvm::raw_ostream&) + 46
1 clang 0x000000010e61c209

16 clang 0x000000010d534d72 (anonymous

And the most strange thing is that this error does not happen
everytime for the same test (it happens under certain probability) ?!
Can anyone please show me some hints on how to debug this problem?


My best guess is that I == MBB.end(), in which case there is no
MachineInstr behind it and I->getDebugLoc() is accessing random memory
that may or may not resemble a MachineInstr. Try asserting it's valid
just before the BuildMI, or just stepping through in a debugger.



Thanks, Tim! I pulled the latest code from llvm master and it seems to
be working now... I will try your suggestion after it crashes again.

Yes, it is this problem. I use

BuildMI(&MBB, MI->getDebugLoc(), TII->get(Vanilla::MOV),

for the case and it works now...
