Comment 1 Mark Wielaard 2013-02-23 08:03:56 EST
That is caused by:

    0.155-4 Replace elfutils-0.155-binutils-pr-ld-13621.patch with upstream fix.

In the worst case we can go back to the previous hack. But that hides other problems.

Could someone upload the problematic binaries (src/size is probably the smallest) from a native arm build? So we can inspect which symbol it really is that causes trouble?
Comment 2 Mark Wielaard 2013-02-24 17:03:14 EST
Got access to an arm system (f18, armv7hl.tegra, gcc 4.7.2-8, binutils-2.23.51.0.1-3.fc18.armv7hl).

Looks like the issue is that arm is using the symbol name "__bss_start__" instead of "__bss_start" Only "__bss_start" is handled specially by eu-elflint --gnu.
