Change Logs

* Tue Oct 25 2022 matz@suse.com
- Add binutils-maxpagesize.diff for a problem on old code
  streams, where we would generate too large binaries.
* Tue Oct 25 2022 schwab@suse.de
- s390-pic-dso.diff: use %pB instead of %B
* Mon Oct 17 2022 matz@suse.com
- 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,
  binutils-add-z16-name.diff.
  Implements [jsc#SLE-25046, jsc#PED-2029, jsc#PED-2035, jsc#PED-2033,
  jsc#PED-2030, jsc#PED-2038, jsc#PED-2032, jsc#PED-2034, jsc#PED-2031,

* Sat Aug 06 2022 mliska@suse.cz
- 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
    specification.
  * 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
    links.
  * 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.

    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.

* Mon Sep 21 2020 mliska@suse.cz
- 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.

- Update to binutils 2.37:
  * The GNU Binutils sources now requires a C99 compiler and library to
    build.
  * Support for the arm-symbianelf format has been removed.
  * Support for Realm Management Extension (RME) for AArch64 has been
    added.
  * 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
    sections.
  * 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.

* Sun Jan 24 2021 mliska@suse.cz
- Update to binutils 2.36:
  New features in the Assembler:
    General:
  * 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.
    X86/x86_64:
  * 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.
    ARM/AArch64:
  * 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
    feature.
  * 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
    output.
  * 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
    symtabs.
  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
    option.
  * 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.
