Comment 1 Mark Wielaard 2015-06-11 14:42:11 UTC
This is cause by --enable-gcov I don't know why yet.

Comment 2 Mark Wielaard 2015-06-11 14:53:19 UTC
[14] .init_array          INIT_ARRAY   0000000000000000 000072a8 00000008  0 WA     0   0  8
[15] .rela.init_array     RELA         0000000000000000 000233e0 00000018 24       33  14  8

elflint calls ebl_check_reloc_target_type which checks the sh_type is either SHT_PROGBITS or SHT_NOBITS

I guess either SHT_PREINIT_ARRAY, SHT_INIT_ARRAY or SHT_FINI_ARRAY should be fine too.

Comment 3 Mark Wielaard 2015-06-12 10:52:39 UTC
Proposed upstream fix:

commit c6a27f074a670793936c264f8025ec66b024f6c7
Author: Mark Wielaard <mjw@redhat.com>
Date:   Fri Jun 12 12:50:14 2015 +0200

    libebl: SHT_(INIT|FINI|PREINIT)_ARRAY are valid targets for relocation.
    
    Seen in run-elflint-self.sh for size.o when build with --enable-gcov.
