Summary: The gold linker
gold is an ELF linker.	It is intended to have complete support for ELF
and to run as fast as possible on modern systems.  For normal use it is
a drop-in replacement for the older GNU linker.






* Tue Oct 25 2022
  - Add binutils-maxpagesize.diff for a problem on old code
    streams, where we would generate too large binaries.
* Tue Oct 25 2022
  - s390-pic-dso.diff: use %pB instead of %B
* Mon Oct 17 2022
  - SLE toolchain update of binutils.  Update to 2.39 from 2.37,
    which means obsoleting and hence removing these patches:
    binutils-add-efi-aarch64-1.diff, binutils-add-efi-aarch64-2.diff,
    binutils-add-efi-aarch64-3.diff, binutils-fix-keepdebug.diff,

* Sat Aug 06 2022
  - Update to binutils 2.39:
    * The ELF linker will now generate a warning message if the stack is made
      executable.  Similarly it will warn if the output binary contains a
      segment with all three of the read, write and execute permission
      bits set.  These warnings are intended to help developers identify
      programs which might be vulnerable to attack via these executable
      memory regions.
      The warnings are enabled by default but can be disabled via a command
      line option.  It is also possible to build a linker with the warnings
      disabled, should that be necessary.
    * The ELF linker now supports a --package-metadata option that allows
      embedding a JSON payload in accordance to the Package Metadata
    * In linker scripts it is now possible to use TYPE=<type> in an output
      section description to set the section type value.
    * The objdump program now supports coloured/colored syntax
      highlighting of its disassembler output for some architectures.
      (Currently: AVR, RiscV, s390, x86, x86_64).
    * The nm program now supports a --no-weak/-W option to make it ignore
      weak symbols.
    * The readelf and objdump programs now support a -wE option to prevent
      them from attempting to access debuginfod servers when following
    * The objcopy program's --weaken, --weaken-symbol, and
    - -weaken-symbols options now works with unique symbols as well.
  - Rebase binutils-compat-old-behaviour.diff, binutils-revert-hlasm-insns.diff,
    binutils-revert-plt32-in-branches.diff and remove binutils-2.38-branch.diff.gz.
  - For now use --disable-gprofng.

    * elfedit: Add --output-abiversion option to update ABIVERSION.
    * Add support for the LoongArch instruction set.
    * Tools which display symbols or strings (readelf, strings, nm, objdump)
      have a new command line option which controls how unicode characters are
      handled.  By default they are treated as normal for the tool.  Using
    - -unicode=locale will display them according to the current locale.
      Using --unicode=hex will display them as hex byte values, whilst
    - -unicode=escape will display them as escape sequences.  In addition
      using --unicode=highlight will display them as unicode escape sequences
      highlighted in red (if supported by the output device).
    * readelf -r dumps RELR relative relocations now.
    * Support for efi-app-aarch64, efi-rtdrv-aarch64 and efi-bsdrv-aarch64 has been
      added to objcopy in order to enable UEFI development using binutils.
    * ar: Add --thin for creating thin archives. -T is a deprecated alias without
      diagnostics. In many ar implementations -T has a different meaning, as
      specified by X/Open System Interface.
    * Add support for AArch64 system registers that were missing in previous
    * Add support for the LoongArch instruction set.
    * Add a command-line option, -muse-unaligned-vector-move, for x86 target
      to encode aligned vector move as unaligned vector move.
    * Add support for Cortex-R52+ for Arm.
    * Add support for Cortex-A510, Cortex-A710, Cortex-X2 for AArch64.
    * Add support for Cortex-A710 for Arm.
    * Add support for Scalable Matrix Extension (SME) for AArch64.
    * The --multibyte-handling=[allow|warn|warn-sym-only] option tells the
      assembler what to when it encoutners multibyte characters in the input.  The
      default is to allow them.  Setting the option to "warn" will generate a
      warning message whenever any multibyte character is encountered.  Using the
      option to "warn-sym-only" will make the assembler generate a warning whenever a
      symbol is defined containing multibyte characters.  (References to undefined
      symbols will not generate warnings).
    * Outputs of .ds.x directive and .tfloat directive with hex input from
      x86 assembler have been reduced from 12 bytes to 10 bytes to match the
      output of .tfloat directive.
    * Add support for 'armv8.8-a', 'armv9-a', 'armv9.1-a', 'armv9.2-a' and
      'armv9.3-a' for -march in AArch64 GAS.
    * Add support for 'armv8.7-a', 'armv8.8-a', 'armv9-a', 'armv9.1-a',
      'armv9.2-a' and 'armv9.3-a' for -march in Arm GAS.
    * Add support for Intel AVX512_FP16 instructions.
    * Add -z pack-relative-relocs/-z no pack-relative-relocs to x86 ELF
      linker to pack relative relocations in the DT_RELR section.
    * Add support for the LoongArch architecture.
    * Add -z indirect-extern-access/-z noindirect-extern-access to x86 ELF
      linker to control canonical function pointers and copy relocation.

  - Update to binutils 2.37:
    * The GNU Binutils sources now requires a C99 compiler and library to
    * Support for the arm-symbianelf format has been removed.
    * Support for Realm Management Extension (RME) for AArch64 has been
    * A new linker option '-z report-relative-reloc' for x86 ELF targets
      has been added to report dynamic relative relocations.
    * A new linker option '-z start-stop-gc' has been added to disable
      special treatment of __start_*/__stop_* references when
    - -gc-sections.
    * A new linker options '-Bno-symbolic' has been added which will
      cancel the '-Bsymbolic' and '-Bsymbolic-functions' options.
    * The readelf tool has a new command line option which can be used to
      specify how the numeric values of symbols are reported.
    - -sym-base=0|8|10|16 tells readelf to display the values in base 8,
      base 10 or base 16.  A sym base of 0 represents the default action
      of displaying values under 10000 in base 10 and values above that in
      base 16.
    * A new format has been added to the nm program.  Specifying
      '--format=just-symbols' (or just using -j) will tell the program to
      only display symbol names and nothing else.
    * A new command line option '--keep-section-symbols' has been added to
      objcopy and strip.  This stops the removal of unused section symbols
      when the file is copied.  Removing these symbols saves space, but
      sometimes they are needed by other tools.
    * The '--weaken', '--weaken-symbol' and '--weaken-symbols' options
      supported by objcopy now make undefined symbols weak on targets that
      support weak symbols.
    * Readelf and objdump can now display and use the contents of .debug_sup
    * Readelf and objdump will now follow links to separate debug info
      files by default.  This behaviour can be stopped via the use of the
      new '-wN' or '--debug-dump=no-follow-links' options for readelf and
      the '-WN' or '--dwarf=no-follow-links' options for objdump.  Also
      the old behaviour can be restored by the use of the
      '--enable-follow-debug-links=no' configure time option.
      The semantics of the =follow-links option have also been slightly
      changed.  When enabled, the option allows for the loading of symbol
      tables and string tables from the separate files which can be used
      to enhance the information displayed when dumping other sections,
      but it does not automatically imply that information from the
      separate files should be displayed.
      If other debug section display options are also enabled (eg
      '--debug-dump=info') then the contents of matching sections in both
      the main file and the separate debuginfo file *will* be displayed.
      This is because in most cases the debug section will only be present
      in one of the files.
      If however non-debug section display options are enabled (eg
      '--sections') then the contents of matching parts of the separate
      debuginfo file will *not* be displayed.  This is because in most
      cases the user probably only wanted to load the symbol information
      from the separate debuginfo file.  In order to change this behaviour
      a new command line option --process-links can be used.  This will
      allow di0pslay options to applied to both the main file and any
      separate debuginfo files.
    * Nm has a new command line option: '--quiet'.  This suppresses "no
      symbols" diagnostic.

* Tue Feb 02 2021
  - Add temporary upstream fix for PR27311
* Sun Jan 24 2021
  - Update to binutils 2.36:
    New features in the Assembler:
    * When setting the link order attribute of ELF sections, it is now
      possible to use a numeric section index instead of symbol name.
    * Added a .nop directive to generate a single no-op instruction in
      a target neutral manner.  This instruction does have an effect on
      DWARF line number generation, if that is active.
    * Removed --reduce-memory-overheads and --hash-size as gas now
      uses hash tables that can be expand and shrink automatically.
    * Add support for AVX VNNI, HRESET, UINTR, TDX, AMX and Key
      Locker instructions.
    * Support non-absolute segment values for lcall and ljmp.
    * Add {disp16} pseudo prefix to x86 assembler.
    * Configure with --enable-x86-used-note by default for Linux/x86.
    * Add support for Cortex-A78, Cortex-A78AE and Cortex-X1,
      Cortex-R82, Neoverse V1, and Neoverse N2 cores.
    * Add support for ETMv4 (Embedded Trace Macrocell), ETE (Embedded
      Trace Extension), TRBE (Trace Buffer Extension), CSRE (Call
      Stack Recorder Extension) and BRBE (Branch Record Buffer
      Extension) system registers.
    * Add support for Armv8-R and Armv8.7-A ISA extensions.
    * Add support for DSB memory nXS barrier, WFET and WFIT
      instruction for Armv8.7.
    * Add support for +csre feature for -march. Add CSR PDEC
      instruction for CSRE feature in AArch64.
    * Add support for +flagm feature for -march in Armv8.4 AArch64.
    * Add support for +ls64 feature for -march in Armv8.7
      AArch64. Add atomic 64-byte load/store instructions for this
    * Add support for +pauth (Pointer Authentication) feature for
    - march in AArch64.
      New features in the Linker:
    * Add --error-handling-script=<NAME> command line option to allow
      a helper script to be invoked when an undefined symbol or a
      missing library is encountered.  This option can be suppressed
      via the configure time switch: --enable-error-handling-script=no.
    * Add -z x86-64-{baseline|v[234]} to the x86 ELF linker to mark
      x86-64-{baseline|v[234]} ISA level as needed.
    * Add -z unique-symbol to avoid duplicated local symbol names.
    * The creation of PE format DLLs now defaults to using a more
      secure set of DLL characteristics.
    * The linker now deduplicates the types in .ctf sections.  The new
      command-line option --ctf-share-types describes how to do this:
      its default value, share-unconflicted, produces the most compact
    * The linker now omits the "variable section" from .ctf sections
      by default, saving space.  This is almost certainly what you
      want unless you are working on a project that has its own
      analogue of symbol tables that are not reflected in the ELF
    New features in other binary tools:
    * The ar tool's previously unused l modifier is now used for
      specifying dependencies of a static library. The arguments of
      this option (or --record-libdeps long form option) will be
      stored verbatim in the __.LIBDEP member of the archive, which
      the linker may read at link time.
    * Readelf can now display the contents of LTO symbol table
      sections when asked to do so via the --lto-syms command line
    * Readelf now accepts the -C command line option to enable the
      demangling of symbol names.  In addition the --demangle=<style>,
    - -no-demangle, --recurse-limit and --no-recurse-limit options
      are also now availale.

    * The above includes fixes for dwo files produced by modern dwp,
      fixing several problems in the DWARF reader.
* Mon Oct 12 2020
  - Reapply spec file cleanup from format_spec_file
  - Remove a SLE10 version check
* Mon Sep 21 2020
  - Update to 2.35.1 and rebased branch diff:
    * This is a point release over the previous 2.35 version, containing bug
    fixes, and as an exception to the usual rule, one new feature.  The
    new feature is the support for a new directive in the assembler:
    ".nop".  This directive creates a single no-op instruction in whatever
    encoding is correct for the target architecture.  Unlike the .space or
    .fill this is a real instruction, and it does affect the generation of
    DWARF line number tables, should they be enabled.

* Mon Nov 18 2019
  - Add add-ulp-section.diff for user space live patching.
* Tue Oct 22 2019
  - Update to binutils 2.33.1:
    * Adds support for the Arm Scalable Vector Extension version 2
      (SVE2) instructions, the Arm Transactional Memory Extension (TME)
      instructions and the Armv8.1-M Mainline and M-profile Vector
      Extension (MVE) instructions.
    * Adds support for the Arm Cortex-A76AE, Cortex-A77 and Cortex-M35P
      processors and the AArch64 Cortex-A34, Cortex-A65, Cortex-A65AE,
      Cortex-A76AE, and Cortex-A77 processors.
    * Adds a .float16 directive for both Arm and AArch64 to allow
      encoding of 16-bit floating point literals.
    * For MIPS, Add -m[no-]fix-loongson3-llsc option to fix (or not)
      Loongson3 LLSC Errata.  Add a --enable-mips-fix-loongson3-llsc=[yes|no]
      configure time option to set the default behavior. Set the default
      if the configure option is not used to "no".
    * The Cortex-A53 Erratum 843419 workaround now supports a choice of
      which workaround to use.  The option --fix-cortex-a53-843419 now
      takes an optional argument --fix-cortex-a53-843419[=full|adr|adrp]
      which can be used to force a particular workaround to be used.
      See --help for AArch64 for more details.
    * Add support for GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI and
      GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_PAC  in ELF GNU program properties
      in the AArch64 ELF linker.
    * Add -z force-bti for AArch64 to enable GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI
      on output while warning about missing GNU_PROPERTY_AARCH64_FEATURE_1_BTI
      on inputs and use PLTs protected with BTI.
    * Add -z pac-plt for AArch64 to pick PAC enabled PLTs.
    * Add --source-comment[=<txt>] option to objdump which if present,
      provides a prefix to source code lines displayed in a disassembly.
    * Add --set-section-alignment <section-name>=<power-of-2-align>
      option to objcopy to allow the changing of section alignments.
    * Add --verilog-data-width option to objcopy for verilog targets to
      control width of data elements in verilog hex format.
    * The separate debug info file options of readelf (--debug-dump=links
      and --debug-dump=follow) and objdump (--dwarf=links and
    - -dwarf=follow-links) will now display and/or follow multiple
      links if more than one are present in a file.  (This usually
      happens when gcc's -gsplit-dwarf option is used).
      In addition objdump's --dwarf=follow-links now also affects its
      other display options, so that for example, when combined with
    - -syms it will cause the symbol tables in any linked debug info
      files to also be displayed.  In addition when combined with
    - -disassemble the --dwarf= follow-links option will ensure that
      any symbol tables in the linked files are read and used when
      disassembling code in the main file.
    * Add support for dumping types encoded in the Compact Type Format
      to objdump and readelf.

    * The addr2line, c++filt, nm and objdump tools now have a default
      limit on the maximum amount of recursion that is allowed whilst
      demangling strings.  This limit can be disabled if necessary.
    * Objdump's --disassemble option can now take a parameter,

* Wed Mar 08 2017
  - Update to binutils 2.28.
    * Add support for locating separate debug info files using the build-id
      method, where the separate file has a name based upon the build-id of
      the original file.
    * This version of binutils fixes a problem with PowerPC VLE 16A and 16D
      relocations which were functionally swapped, for example,
      R_PPC_VLE_HA16A performed like R_PPC_VLE_HA16D while R_PPC_VLE_HA16D
      performed like R_PPC_VLE_HA16A.  This could have been fixed by
      renumbering relocations, which would keep object files created by an
      older version of gas compatible with a newer ld.  However, that would
      require an ABI update, affecting other assemblers and linkers that
      create and process the relocations correctly.  It is recommended that
      all VLE object files be recompiled, but ld can modify the relocations
      if --vle-reloc-fixup is passed to ld.  If the new ld command line
      option is not used, ld will ld warn on finding relocations inconsistent
      with the instructions being relocated.
    * The nm program has a new command line option (--with-version-strings)
      which will display a symbol's version information, if any, after the
      symbol's name.
    * The ARC port of objdump now accepts a -M option to specify the extra
      instruction class(es) that should be disassembled.
    * The --remove-section option for objcopy and strip now accepts section
      patterns starting with an exclamation point to indicate a non-matching
      section.  A non-matching section is removed from the set of sections
      matched by an earlier --remove-section pattern.
    * The --only-section option for objcopy now accepts section patterns
      starting with an exclamation point to indicate a non-matching section.
      A non-matching section is removed from the set of sections matched by
      an earlier --only-section pattern.
    * New --remove-relocations=SECTIONPATTERN option for objcopy and strip.
      This option can be used to remove sections containing relocations.
      The SECTIONPATTERN is the section to which the relocations apply, not
      the relocation section itself.
    * Add support for the RISC-V architecture.
    * Add support for the ARM Cortex-M23 and Cortex-M33 processors.
    GNU ld
    * The EXCLUDE_FILE linker script construct can now be applied outside of the
      section list in order for the exclusions to apply over all input sections
      in the list.
    * Add support for the RISC-V architecture.
    * The command line option --no-eh-frame-hdr can now be used in ELF based
      linkers to disable the automatic generation of .eh_frame_hdr sections.
    * Add --in-implib=<infile> to the ARM linker to enable specifying a set of
      Secure Gateway veneers that must exist in the output import library
      specified by --out-implib=<outfile> and the address they must have.
      As such, --in-implib is only supported in combination with --cmse-implib.
    * Extended the --out-implib=<file> option, previously restricted to x86 PE
      targets, to any ELF based target.  This allows the generation of an import
      library for an ELF executable, which can then be used by another application
      to link against the executable.
    * Add -z bndplt option (x86-64 only) to support Intel MPX.
    * Add --orphan-handling option.
    * Add --stub-group-multi option (PowerPC only).
    * Add --target1-rel, --target1-abs, --target2 options (Arm only).
    * Add -z stack-size option.
    * Add --be8 option (Arm only).
    * Add HIDDEN support in linker scripts.
    * Add SORT_BY_INIT_PRIORITY support in linker scripts.
