When I build cpython, I got this error:
Objects/obmalloc.c:1414:1: warning: ‘no_sanitize_thread’ attribute directive ignored [-Wattributes]
I removed the _Py_NO_SANITIZE_THREAD and build again, this warning dismissed. not sure ASAN、TSAN and MSAN have some inner relation?

- Which python version do you try to build?
- What platform are you on?
- Which compiler and compiler version do you use?

I want to build the cpython of master.
My platform and compiler info: Linux version 3.10.0-957.1.3.el7.x86_64 ( (gcc version 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-36) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Thu Nov 29 14:49:43 UTC 2018

Looks not all platform get this info.

A GCC export should be able to tell more, but the warning should be harmless.

Objects/obmalloc.c says that the thread sanitizer is available from GCC 4.8, but for some reason it isn't on your system. This seems to be a bug in obmalloc.c:  The GCC 4.8.5 docs don't mention this attribute [1], while the 5.5 docs do [2]


There's a couple of releases between 4.8.5 and 5.5.0, I don't know which one introduces this function attribute. Once that version is know it should be fairly easy to provide a patch that only uses the attribute for new enough compilers.

thanks, Ronald. Let me check the process by the upstairs refs.

I checked no_sanitize_thread in some gcc manual of different version. And looks the no_sanitize_thread from gcc 5.1.0 [3](not 4.8)


Alexey have some descr of TSAN in `GCC introduced TSan together with ASan in 4.8` is wrong)
