Summary 0000689: GCC7: Test failure on i686
Description The ReportCorrectnessTest of the linlsqr test fails on i686 when building with GCC7 (7.0.1 20170309) on Fedora rawhide. The failure occurs in the below section of test_c.cpp (some debug prints were added). The output of this snippet is:

1 0

 * check, that RNorm is't more than S.R2
 * and difference between S.R2 and TNorm
 * is't more than 'eps'(here S.R2=||rk||,
 * calculated by the algorithm for LSQR, and
 * TNorm=||A*S.x-b||, calculated by test function).
if( ae_fp_greater(s.r2,rnorm)||ae_fp_greater(ae_fabs(s.r2-tnorm, _state),eps) )
    if( !silent )
        printf("%d %d\n", ae_fp_greater(s.r2,rnorm), ae_fp_greater(ae_fabs(s.r2-tnorm, _state),eps));
    result = ae_true;
    return result;

By the way, the comment is also a bit confusing. If "is't" actually means "isn't", then the comment states that the test should verify:
rNorm < s.r2 <=> s.r2 > rNorm
|s.r2 - tNorm| < eps

but as far as I see the code fails if:
a) ae_fp_greater(s.r2,rnorm) <=> s.r2 > rNorm
b) ae_fp_greater(ae_fabs(s.r2-tnorm, _state),eps) <=> |s.r2 - tnorm| > eps

So a) matches the comment, but b) does not (and if "is't" means "is", then the opposite is true).

The build is using the following flags:
-O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Werror=format-security -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector-strong --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -grecord-gcc-switches -m32 -march=i686 -fasynchronous-unwind-tables -fPIC
