I hate to crosspost but this one seems to merit it.
Version: all newlib versions that I know of including 1.8.2
binutils: OK with 2.9.1, breaks with recent snapshots.
I am trying to test newlib 1.8.2 with late model binutils to get
an RTEMS patch submitted. Earlier this week, I ran into trouble
because the .subspa directive has been removed. At first, I thought
this would just impact RTEMS specific code. A quick find/grep turned
up all of this:
bash$ find newlib-1.8.2 -type f | xargs -e grep -il subspa
bash$ find newlib-1.8.2 -type f | xargs -e grep -i subspa | wc -l
For a total of 71 subspace in 9 files.
I am not an hppa expert, so don't really know how to deal with this
one. RTEMS itself has 34 subspaces in 3 files impacted as well so
advice on how to semi-mechanically correct this would be greatly
Hopefully, this report will spark enough discussion to figure out what
