gcc2_compiled.


Hello all,
   Somewhere since gas-960129, the handling of symbols defined outside
of a segment such as "gcc2_compiled.", has changed.  On elf32_i386, I
find that st_info is now zero (STT_NOTYPE), rather than one
(STT_OBJECT).  This breaks insmod on linux, because it wrongly used
(sp->st_info & 0xf) == 0 to test for undefined symbols.  I've fixed
insmod, but why the change?  Is STT_NOTYPE correct for symbols such as
gcc2_compiled. ?
