Thanks. I have changed the commit message to this:
Remove support for NO_CTORS_DTORS_SECTIONS
This was originally added to support binutils older than version
Since 2.22 is older than the minimum required binutils version
for building glibc, we no longer need this. (The changes do
not impact the statically linked startup code.)
Tested on x86_64-linux-gnu, i686-linux-gnu, s390x-linux-gnu,
powerpc64le-linux-gnu, aarch64-linux-gnu. Built with
build-many-glibcs.py (compilers followed by glibcs).
Okay for master?
