So g++ was crashing on me tonight. There were two reasons:

  • Loop unrolling was running out of memory during optimization.
  • An (unrelated) disk was dying on my system, causing all sorts of interrupt nonsense and mysterious blocking issues.

Until I figured out the failing hardware connection, it was really confusing that every time I started gcc all processes blocked.

I hate disks. I want the storage problem to be solved.
