[Qemu-devel] a strange segmentation fault

Hi QEMU developers,

I'm running into a strange problem when I add some my own stuff in QEMU.
If I add a function call in the following position, QEMU will crash immediately after execution.

In target-i386/op.c:
void OPPROTO op_jnz_T0_label(void)
    helper_test(T0); //my own function
    if (T0)

I define this function in target-i386/helper.c:

int helper_test(int t0)
    return 100+t0;

I try it on the two versions: 0.8.2 and 0.8.0. The problem appears no matter what kqemu option (-kernel-kqemu -no-kqmeu, or none) is used and what guest os (linux or winxp) is to launch.

I got the following message from gdb:

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread -1212991808 (LWP 28612)]
0x00000001 in ?? ()
(gdb) bt

#3  0x08051fe2 in main (argc=3324, argv=0x8)
    at /home/hyin/qemu-0.8.2/vl.c:6221

Interestingly, if I change the function helper_test to take no arguments, the fault will be gone.

Can anybody give any hints of what may cause this fault and how to solve it?
