Closed as program error.
When compiling an application with the -qarch=pwr7 compile option, and enabling optimization level -O2 or -O3, the generated .machine pseudo-op incorrectly reads 'pwr6' instead of 'pwr7'.
Optimization levels -O0, -O4 and -O5 output the correct .machine tag.
PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: The .machine tag generated in an output object file depends on the highest processor architecture level instruction generated by the compiler, not necessarily the -qarch setting. For example, it is possible that compiling with -qarch=pwr7 may only generate POWER6-level instructions, which would cause a .machine tag of 'pwr6' to be output. An issue exists where an inline ASM or mc_func block could contain a higher level instruction than generated by the compiler, resulting in an incorrect .machine tag. USERS AFFECTED: Applications that depend on the .machine tag in an object file. Users of -qarch.
The compiler was modified to force the .machine tag to match the -qarch setting if an inline ASM or mc_func block is detected.
