Description Luke Diamand 2004-09-21 10:06:52 UTC
If you try to compile with -Wa,-Asparclet using gcc, then the assembler will
abort on some files (those using sparclet insns?), reporting:

BFD 2.13 internal error, aborting at
           arc.c line 2091 in elf32_sparc_final_write_processing

(This is in binutils 2.13, but it also happens in binutils 2.15, but at a
different line number - I just happen to be testing with 2.13 today).

It seems to be missing a clause in the switch statement in

My naive fix is just to add:

    case bfd_mach_sparc_sparclet :

as per the context-diff at the end of this report. I don't know enough about
binutils to know if this is the correct way to fix this problem though.
