[patch] S/390: Optimize 64-bit local relocs -> section relocs
Mon Apr 14 20:40:00 GMT 2008
in the patch
you disallowed non-pc-rel relocs to merge sections for both 31-bit and 64-bit
But the comment there references only unspecific 31-bit problems.
Is it safe to permit again the non-pc-rel relocs at least on 64-bit s/390?
Linux kernel built with this patch runs fine but not sure about other programs.
The patch reduces s390x Linux kernel rpms size base+debuginfo 25M+66M -> 6M+60M.
(Some of the info was found by Jakub Jelinek.)
