Re: Ping [Patch] include/coff/xcoff.h: add new macros
It looks like I indeed get the definitions of:
+ #define F_LPTEXT 0x0400
+ #define F_LPDATA 0x0800
+ #define F_LOADONLY 0x4000
+ #define F_NONEXEC 0x8000
directly from the AIX headers. But F_LPDATA is mentioned in AIX 6.1 doc for ld, so is F_LOADONLY in strip command.
F_NONEXEC is documented in:
So only F_LPTEXT doesn't appear in IBM doc, but it appears in Valgrind code.
I trust you that they're correct. The reason I held back was that
I was worried about copyright issues if the patch was a bulk copy of
macros from the AIX header files.
I can remove these macros as they aren't yet used in binutils. Tell me what do you prefer.
I think that it would be best to remove them. If they are not needed
and we cannot be sure of their copyright status, then lets leave them
out. A patch with this change is pre-approved.
