Re: Prelinking of shared libraries
I have updated my paper with, among other things, something that John Polstra
(BSD linker) pointed out:
It is interesting to note that multiple R_386_32 entries can point to the
The following table lists the number of total R_386_32 entries per library as
well as the number of unique symbols referenced.
R_386_32 Unique Symbols
libqt 17090 4377
libkdecore 1719 806
libkdeui 15547 2518
libXft 46 30
John managed to get quite some saving wrt link-time by caching symbol lookups
for R_386_32 relocations. Konqueror startup went down from 0.86 to 0.40.
