Description Bryn M. Reeves 2007-05-24 12:34:48 EDT
Description of problem:
.debug_pubtypes is a section defined in the DWARF debugging information standard
version 3 and resides in elf an section; however, this is missing from the
internal linker script.

As a result, it is affected by "ld --unique".

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create input objects having several .debug_pubtypes or .debug_ranges sections
2. Link the objects using ld --unique
3. Check the resulting object with readelf
Actual results:
.debug_pubtypes or .debug_ranges sections are treated as orphans and are not
merged in the output (a separate output section is emitted for each
.debug_pubtypes or .debug_ranges section in the input).

Expected results:
When using --unique, these sections are not treated as orphans and are merged
into the a single section in the output.
