[12/21] Trim XCOFF symbols earlier in the link process
Fri Mar 13 15:01:00 GMT 2009
> * libcoff-in.h (xcoff_tdata): Change debug_indices to a signed long.
> * libcoff.h: Regenerate.
> * xcofflink.c (xcoff_keep_symbol_p): New function, using the
> "skip" logic from xcoff_link_input_bfd.
> (bfd_xcoff_size_dynamic_sections): Explicitly skip dynamic
> objects in a dynamic link, rather than checking whether csectpp
> is null. Always allocate debug_index for other objects,
> and always go through the loop. Update the type of debug_index
> after the change above. Read the auxillary csect information
> and use xcoff_keep_symbol_p to decide whether a symbol should
> be kept. Set its debug_index to -2 if not.
> (xcoff_link_input_bfd): Update the type of debug_index after
> the change above and always expect it to be nonnull. Use it to
> test whether a symbol should be stripped, rather than making the
> decision here. Postpone all symbol creation to the second pass.
