x86: Disable AVX support on 64-bit MinGW
GCC for 64-bit Windows has a bug that it fails to properly re-align the stack pointer for use with 256-bit memory addresses (AVX). Therefore, there's about a 50/50 chance that any function using AVX will have an improperly-aligned stack. In release mode, stack accesses should be rare, but in debug mode they happen frequently. Either way, this is a ticking time bomb, so we disable. Clang is not affected. 32-bit MinGW is not affected. 64-bit in other OSes with GCC are not affected. Fixes: QTBUG-73539 Change-Id: Id061f35c088044b69a15fffd1580967808f31671 Reviewed-by: Allan Sandfeld Jensen <>
