Re: Obsoleting elfarm-oabi [was Re: PATCH: Reduce size of SymbianOSDLLs]
Some more archaeology. Following a conversation with Phil Blundel, I
took a look at the old releases. In binutils 2.9 there was NO support
for ELF on ARM of any kind. In binutils 2.10 the old ABI was already
that -- old.
So if any release of binutils had the old ABI as its default, it wasn't
an FSF release?
Nick, could this be some GNU PRO legacy?
Thinking about it, yes I think that you are right. It must have been a
release from back in the Cygnus days that happened between 2.9 and 2.10.
Given that there never was an official FSF release that supported this
oabi I can see no reason to retain the code in the binutils sources. If
there are any oabi users out there they can complain to Red Hat and get
So - please do go ahead and delete the oabi code.
