Comment 3 Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2022-05-09 00:36:56 UTC
Oh, I guess there's two bugs here then. Binutils should error out properly but UB in protos?
Comment 4 WANG Xuerui gentoo-dev 2022-05-09 00:38:34 UTC
Offending assertion in bfd/elfnn-loongarch.c, inside loongarch_elf_relocate_section:

> BFD_ASSERT (!resolved_dynly || (h && h->dynindx != -1));

According to the upstream issue about the "linker error", it's delibrately specified to ignore unresolved symbols for the test, and the problem goes away if one removes the -Wl,--unresolved-symbols=ignore-all switch.

> $ gcc foo.o foo-code.o -Wl,--unresolved-symbols=ignore-all

So it's solely binutils' fault after all.

Comment 6 WANG Xuerui gentoo-dev 2022-05-09 01:07:10 UTC
This seems to be already fixed in binutils master branch, I'll check which commit(s) to backport.
Comment 7 WANG Xuerui gentoo-dev 2022-05-09 01:20:44 UTC
Confirmed upstream commit 3024b63f9f022432790c2992ae3f743c4293d12e fixes the bug, but from a quick look all subsequent commits to the LoongArch backend after the 2.38 release seem good enough to carry.
Comment 8 WANG Xuerui gentoo-dev 2022-05-09 01:24:16 UTC
Sorry; pasted local cherry-picked commit hash. It should be commit d218dba3f491191322e50df74376faa11c4a9f6b.
Comment 9 WANG Xuerui gentoo-dev 2022-05-09 03:05:53 UTC
Actually the cherry-picked commit only fixes the bare ld invocation with the two object files, but not the segfault. Opened an issue on vendor bug tracker.
Comment 10 WANG Xuerui gentoo-dev 2022-05-09 03:22:57 UTC
I've packed all files for reproducing the segfault and uploaded to my devspace, due to the tarball being larger than 1M:

Untar and check "" for seeing the segfault yourself. I tested on both loong and amd64, with all currently available upstream loong patches applied, and the segfault remains.
