1. I have a binary file and want to objcopy it from the binary format to
elf64-ia64-little, creating one ELF section in it, the result is called
2. I want to link empty.o with other .o files that were compiled with
3. ld returns an error complaining about linking constant-gp and
non-constant-gp object files
So I would like to know if you consider this a regression or if it is
actually a feature or a fix introduced in the newest version.
I think I would count this as a feature rather than a bug, purely because there
is a better way of achieving what you want to do:
1. Create a small assembler file that includes the binary file you are
.section foo, "a", @progbits
2. Assemble this file, and make sure that you include the -mconstant-gp
option on the command line:
ia64-linux-as -mconstant-gp foo.s -o foo.o
3. Link in this new object file with the rest of your application.
