Error: "xlen must be 32 or 64 for save-restore implementation

I have successfully built the clang compiler. The cmake parameter specifies “- DLLVM_TARGETS_TO_BUILD=” RISCV “- DLLVM_DEFAULT_TARGET_TRIPLE=riscv32 unknown elf”. Then I want to build compiler-rt, following the steps given on the official website:

cd llvm project;
mkdir build-compiler-rt;
cd build-compiler-rt;
cmake ../compiler-rt -DLLVM_ CONFIG_ PATH=/path/to/llvm-config;

but it reports error:

how to resolve this problem?

Is it the same issue as this one?

Yes, the problem is the same. But I don’t think there is a final solution to this issue.

Yes, you can leverage the gnu runtime libraries by clang/clang++ as workaround for now.

Thank you very much. At present, I can successfully compile using gnu runtime libraries. Another problem is that I compared the size of the executable file compiled by clang with that compiled by riscv32-unknown-elf-gcc. It is found that the size of the file compiled by clang is several times larger than that compiled by gcc. Do you know why?

I think it may be case by case. You may need to check the below items.

  • Static/dynamic link.
  • Debug info, stripped or not.
  • C extension involved or not.
  • At last, compare the disassembly code, but may be tough here.
