Description Roland McGrath 2006-07-19 15:11:19 EDT
Description of problem:

The debugedit program fails to recognize relocs in debug info that it can fix up
on ppc.

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

rpm-4.4.2, and looks like all rpm-4.3 and later.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. do a kernel rpm build on ppc
2. see errors
3. marvel that noone noticed in all these years
Actual results:

Lots of errors like this one:

Unhandled relocation 1 in .debug_info section

Expected results:

It should be able to handle that reloc type.

Additional info:

This looks like a simple braino/typo in the ppc part of the original reloc-fixup
patch to debugedit.  I'll attach the trivial patch to fix it.
