Description H.J. Lu 2013-11-16 00:18:30 UTC
reloc_class_ifunc is added to put the IRELATIVE relocations
at the end of dynamic relocation table.  There are 2

1. elf_link_sort_relocs is called with

  if (dynamic && info->combreloc && dynobj != NULL) 
    relativecount = elf_link_sort_relocs (abfd, info, &reldyn);

If -z comreloc isn't used, sorting is off.

2. elf_link_sort_relocs only deals with .rel.dyn and .rela.dyn.
But some backends put IRELATIVE relocations in .rel.plt or
.rela.plt, regardless if -z comreloc is used.  So reloc_class_ifunc
does nothing.
