In Parkes on the Yeeloong, Iceowl works fine. Icedove is currently blacklisted, but Squeeze's binary also works fine.

Icedove in Squeeze (3.0.10-1) starts up without segfault on my Yeeloong now. See also http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=482298.
Iceowl in Squeeze (1.0~b1+dfsg1-1) also starts without segfault.

Subject: [PATCH v4] Fixups of Loongson2F
From: Wu Zhangjin <wuzhangjin@gmail.com>

(This v4 revision incorporates with the feedbacks from Richard
Sandiford, Zhang Fuxin, Maciej W. Rozycki, Alfred M. Szmidt and Yan
Hua, Thanks goes to them!)

This patch adds two new options for binutils: -mfix-loongson2f-nop and
-mfix-loongson2f-jump to work around the NOP and Jump instruction Issues of
Loongson2F.

-mfix-loongson2f-nop replaces the original NOP instructions by "or at,at,zero"
to work around the NOP issue. Without it, under extreme cases, cpu might
deadlock.(e.g. some have seen this with binutils 2.18, ld dies when compiling).

The NOP issue has been solved in latest loongson2f batches, but this fix has no
side effect to them since the "or at,at,zero" is also a dummy instruction.

-mfix-loongson2f-jump inserts three instructions before the J,JR,JALR
instructions to eliminate instruction fetch from outside 256M region to work
around the JUMP instructions issue(only with some specific external chips, such
as CS5536.). Without it, under extreme cases, kernel may hang/crash with
unpredictable memory access. This fix may bring us with some potential
overhead. This issue has been solved in latest loongson2f batches.

These two fixes are recommended when compiling kernel, but only the
first one is needed to compile applications. That's why I split them out
into two options, not just one -fix-loongson2f. More detailed
explanation about them are given by Zhang Fuxin(one of the Loongson2F
designers) as follows:

- The NOP issue

"The nature of the erratum is deeply related to the microarchitecture of
Loongson-2. It uses roughly a 4-way superscalar dynamically scheduled core,
instructions are excuted as much as possible in parallel with technics like
branch prediction etc. We use a 8-entry internal branch prediction queue to
keep track of each predicted branches, if some branches are proved to be
wrongly predicted, all the instructions following it will be cancelled,together
with the resources used by them, including the registers used for renaming, and
the queue entry will be freeed. There is a bug that might cause a hang when the
queue is full(some resources might been leaked due to conflict branch entries),
the workaround is to reduce the possiblity of branch queue full by using
renaming registers(they are also limited, can prevent too many simutaneos
branches). In theory this is still not enough to fully eliminate possible
hangs, but the possiblity is extremely low now and hard to be hit in real
code."

- The JUMP instructions issue

"The Loongson-2 series processors have quite complex micro-architecture, it will
try to execute instructions from the predicated branch of coming instruction
stream before they are confirmed to be run, if the predication of branch
direction is proved wrong later, the instructions will be cancelled, but if the
instructions is a read from memory, the read action might not be cancelled(but
the changes to register will) to enable some prefetch. This will lead to some
problems when compining with some chipsets. E.g. the AMD CS5536 used in
Yeeloong/Fuloong will hang if it gets an address in the physical address range
of 0x100000-0x200000(might be more other ranges). Speculative reads can perform
read at any address in theory(due to wrong prediction of branch directions and
the use of branch target buffer), thus in very few occasions they might cause a
hard lock of the machine.

To prevent this, we need to prevent some addresses from entering branch
target buffers. A way to do this is that to modify all jump targets, e.g.,
calulations of t9
...
jalr t9 =>
calculations of t9
or t9, t9, 0x80000000; // to make sure t9 is in kseg0
jalr t9
Of course, we have to consider 64/32bit, and modules addresses etc.

This only need to be performed on kernel code, because only there we can have
accesses not translated/limited by TLB. For user code, it is impossible to
generate accesses to unwanted physical address. So it is safe.

Also, to prevent addresses generated by user mode code to be used by the
kernel, we add a few empty jumps to flush the BTB upon entrance to kernel."

Based on https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=434501 and http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=541797#40 it looks like maybe you should try adding -fPIC to ASFLAGS and then recompile the package.

I downloaded the sources for icedove mipsel, sid version from here:

http://packages.debian.org/it/source/sid/icedove

Then I build the package and installed it.
(I had to remove myspell-en-us and myspell-it before, then it installed prefectly).

When I launched icedove, it segfaulted again.
This is version 2.0.0.22-1.1 from debian sid.

/usr/lib/icedove/run-mozilla.sh: line 131: 2995 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

The icedove one is http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=539689 (I'm not sure FTBFS affects the lenny version).

One thing that would be interesting to check is whether these segfaults are reproducible in Debian sid.

We only copy things from Debian archive, the rest is built by ourselves in various ways (including Linux-libre, though indirectly as it's copied from my people.d.o repository or lxo's apt archive).

In practice, we could copy things from any source if they're in a sane state and we have commitment that this source will continue to be maintained. The only advantage in automatically copiing things is that we benefit from future updates without having to worry about it.

In this case, source is in a messy state (can't be recompiled with current toolchain), and there are no updates that we could benefit from. We wouldn't gain anything by auto-importing it.

What we could do if it is really a problem to find a proper fix is include an old toolchain and use it for this package (without auto-import).

Brett Smith indicated that fixing this bug is important to FSF, because it's a popular program, so upping severity.

Comments from Danny Clark:
If anyone wants to take on bcs' challenge, you can either try to fix the bug, or you can try to get an older version (that I can find you the URL for) that is known to work to compile under the newer toolchain on the yeeloong (or I guess since we just copy most things anyway, we could just copy it - nyu?). Issue is it seems to need toolchain that was around during early lenny testing. (Which for all I know would also compile the more recent version so it wouldn't segfault)

I've installed the older binaries from the dev.lemote.com testing repo, and they work fine (where fine means windows come up and no immediate segfault). specifically 2.0.0.9-3 worked last time I tried.
