    ld.so: Support moving versioned symbols between sonames [BZ #24741]
    This change should be fully backwards-compatible because the old
    code aborted the load if a soname mismatch was encountered
    (instead of searching further for a matching symbol).  This means
    that no different symbols are found.
    The soname check was explicitly disabled for the skip_map != NULL
    case.  However, this only happens with dl(v)sym and RTLD_NEXT,
    and those lookups do not come with a verneed entry that could be used
    for the check.
    The error check was already explicitly disabled for the skip_map !=
    NULL case, that is, when dl(v)sym was called with RTLD_NEXT.  But
    _dl_vsym always sets filename in the struct r_found_version argument
    to NULL, so the check was not active anyway.  This means that
    symbol lookup results for the skip_map != NULL case do not change,

Please backport patch to Fedora (if required):
Fedora 31
Fedora 30
Fedora 29

Comment 1 Carlos O'Donell 2019-10-25 02:59:28 UTC
Not required on f31. (Already upstream)
Not required on f30. (Already backported by Florian in 34bc6caeb760409bbfc6e9e04ce02d62255a8557).
Required for f29. Backported it just for the sake of having it there for parity.

Builds in progress.
