Crash on Snapdragon 801

Hi Guys,

I've included QSML to our code that executes a convolutional neural network on Android, and indeed we're seeing ~30% increase in performance compared to Eigen. Everything works well on new devices running Android 6+ but on Galaxy S5 running Android 5.0 (Snapdragon 801) QSML crashes (v0.15.2) with SIGFPE. We're using a single function from QSML, cblas_sgemm() and are using the sequential version with our own threading implementation.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hi ofri,
Thank you for the question, I sent a direct message.  Also, to add some additional information:
Periodically changes are introduced into the NDK that appear to break the ABI.  For instance, applications compiled with NDKs older than r11 appear to be incompatible with projects that use version r11 of the NDK and newer.  This incompatibility usually manifests as an application crash.  My hunch is this is what we are seeing.  We test for this incompatibility internally and release compatible versions of QSML (in this case r10e for older NDK versions and r11 for newer), however, our releases tend to trail NDK releases.  If you are using a newer version of the NDK (r13+) and seeing this problem, please let us know.
Thank you,
