[PATCH] Makefile: use -z pack-relative-relocs

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Commit 27f2a4db76e8 ("Makefile: fix GDB warning with CONFIG_RELR")
added --use-android-relr-tags to fix a GDB warning

BFD: /android0/linux-next/vmlinux: unknown type [0x13] section `.relr.dyn'

The GDB warning has been fixed in version 11.2.

The DT_ANDROID_RELR tag was deprecated since DT_RELR was standardized.
Thus, --use-android-relr-tags should be removed. While making the
change, replace --pack-dyn-relocs=relr with -z pack-relative-relocs,
which is supported since LLD 15.

As of today, GNU ld supports the latter option for x86 and powerpc64
ports and has no intention to support --pack-dyn-relocs=relr. In the
absence of the glibc symbol version GLIBC_ABI_DT_RELR,
--pack-dyn-relocs=relr and -z pack-relative-relocs are identical in
