Fixed In Version: binutils-2.27-28.base.el7
Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
_binutils_ linker no longer terminates unexpectedly when encountering relocations against absolute address Previously, the linker from the _binutils_ package could not properly handle relocations against an absolute address. As a consequence, encountering such relocations caused a segmentation fault of the linker. The linker has been extended to handle relocations against absolute addresses and the problem no longer occurs.

Description Christine Caulfield 2018-03-16 13:11:14 UTC
Description of problem:
When compiling the latest corosync on RHEL7.4 it crashes at link time with
collect2: error: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault], core dumped

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Checkout & build libqb
   $ git clone https://github.com/ClusterLabs/libqb.git
   $ sh autogen.sh && ./configure && make && make install
2. Checkout & build kronosnet
   $ git clone https://github.com/kronosnet/kronosnet.git
   $ sh autogen.sh && ./configure --disable-compress-all && make && make install
3. Checkout and build corosync
   $ git clone https://github.com/corosync/corosync
   $ sh autogen.sh && ./configure && make && make install

Actual results:

Compilation terminates with
Making all in exec
make[2]: Entering directory `/home/christine/dev/corosync/exec'
  CC       corosync-main.o
  CCLD     corosync
collect2: error: ld terminated with signal 11 [Segmentation fault], core dumped
/usr/bin/ld: warning: /usr/lib64/libqb.so contains output sections; did you forget -T?
make[2]: *** [corosync] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/christine/dev/corosync/exec'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/christine/dev/corosync'
make: *** [all] Error 2

Expected results:

Compilation should complete successfully

Additional info:

I'm pretty certain this is down to the symbol fiddling going in in libqb, but I don't think it should segfault the linker :)

I should probably point out that binutils-2.27-22.base.el7 also has the problem but binutils-2.25.1-32.base.el7_4.2.x86_64 works.

Hi Christine,

  Thanks for reporting this bug.

  I have uploaded a patch that fixes the problem, and an update to the
  binutils.spec file so that the new patch will be included in a build.

  But unfortunately the RHEL 7.5 binutils - which are the ones affected 
  by this bug - are now being prepared for release.  So it is too late
  to get this patch in.  It could be released as a z-stream update once
  the release is officially out, but I am not sure how critical this
  problem is for you.  If you are able to use the RHEL-7.4 linker to 
  build corosync, then is a fix for RHEL-7.5 important to you ?


Comment 6 Christine Caulfield 2018-03-19 13:09:11 UTC
Hi Nick,

Thanks for the quick response. We don't need this in RHEL7.5 fortunately because the section fiddling that's going on in libqb isn't included in that release - it does affect upstream and potentially RHEL7.6 though so a Zstream release would be very helpful.

Fixed in: binutils-2.27-28.base.el7

Verified with build binutils-2.27-34.base.el7 using the provided steps.
