           Summary: unexpectedly declaration-only types
           Product: libabigail
           Version: unspecified
            Status: UNCONFIRMED

  Target Milestone: ---

We've noticed for some time that we get a mix of declarations and definitions
appearing in kernel ABI XML for the same types.

In some cases, only a declaration appears despite there being a full definition
in the DWARF. Often, this declaration has a "size" despite the size information
being associated with the full DWARF definition, not the declaration.

I've sent in a patch which illustrates this bug (by changing the order in which
definitions and declarations are canonicalised). If need be, I can send over a

Patch: https://sourceware.org/pipermail/libabigail/2020q3/002679.html

The patch serves as workaround for around 160 kernel types which appear
incomplete in the ABI.
