Description Alan Modra 2019-07-26 06:42:38 UTC
STT_GNU_IFUNC and STB_GNU_UNIQUE are both defined in the relevant LOOS to HIOS range.  That means interpretation of symbols with this type or binding is dependent on the value of the header EI_OSABI byte, and that object files using these symbols should not be created having ELFOSABI_NONE.

Since git commit df3a023bd6, readelf has not displayed "IFUNC" for object files with ELFOSABI_NONE, exposing this bug in gold by the failure of ver_test_pr16504.

    [GOLD] OSABI not set when STT_GNU_IFUNC or STB_GNU_UNIQUE symbols output
    This patch arranges to have OSABI set to ELFOSABI_GNU (if not set to
    some other non-zero value) when gold outputs an ifunc local or global
    symbol, or a unique global symbol to either .dynsym or .symtab.
    STT_GNU_IFUNC and STB_GNU_UNIQUE have values in the LOOS to HIOS range
    and therefore require interpretation according to OSABI.
    I'm not sure why parameters->target() is const Target& while
    parameters->sized_target() is Sized_target*, but it's inconvenient to
    use the latter in Symbol_table::finalize.  So this patch adds another
    const_cast complained about in layout.cc and gold.cc.
    	PR 24853
    	* symtab.h (set_has_gnu_output, has_gnu_output_): New.
    	* symtab.cc (Symbol_table::Symbol_table): Init has_gnu_output_.
    	(Symbol_table::finalize): Set ELFOSABI_GNU when has_gnu_output_.
    	(Symbol_table::set_dynsym_indexes, Symbol_table::sized_finalize):
    	Call set_has_gnu_output for STT_GNU_IFUNC and STB_GNU_UNIQUE globals.
    	* object.cc (Sized_relobj_file::do_finalize_local_symbols): Call
    	set_has_gnu_output when STT_GNU_IFUNC locals will be output.
