Description Allen Webb 2023-11-08 20:38:50 UTC
We ran into this on ChromeOS:

missive-9999: ld.lld: error: undefined symbol: bool google::protobuf::internal::MergeFromImpl<true>(std::__1::basic_string_view<char, std::__1::char_traits<char>>, google::protobuf::MessageLite*, google::protobuf::MessageLite::ParseFlags)
missive-9999: >>> referenced by message_lite.h:583 (/build/brya/usr/include/google/protobuf/message_lite.h:583)

I landed an upstream fix here that you all might want to include as a patch in protobuf 23.3 and on until it is included by default:

Reproducible: Always
