- False positive: sending the message with the partially initialized data triggers a valgrind report for send or write system calls at the sender side
- False negative: at the recipient, valgrind incorrectly assumes that all incoming data is completely initialized and thus will not warn if the uninitialized data influences the control flow in the recipient; normally it would report that
Product and Performance Information
Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
