Description Charles Lopes 2001-12-06 11:31:45 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:0.9.6) Gecko/20011120

Description of problem:
When compiling a vanilla linux 2.4.16 kernel, ld crashes while linking
vmlinux. It seems that kernel.o is the culprit. Trying to link kernel.o is
enough to reproduce the problem. The problem only occurs with
binutils- binutils- works fine with the same file.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. ld -o test kernel.o


Actual Results:  ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; defaulting
to 08048080
kernel.o: In function `cpu_idle':
kernel.o(.text+0x7a): undefined reference to `init_idle'
kernel.o(.text+0xca): undefined reference to `schedule'
kernel.o(.text+0xcf): undefined reference to `check_pgt_cache'
kernel.o: In function `machine_real_restart':
kernel.o(.text+0x10c): undefined reference to `swapper_pg_dir'
kernel.o(.text+0x114): undefined reference to `swapper_pg_dir'
kernel.o(.text+0x126): undefined reference to `swapper_pg_dir'
kernel.o(.text+0x131): undefined reference to `pg0'
kernel.o: In function `machine_restart':
kernel.o(.text+0x1f3): undefined reference to `__const_udelay'
kernel.o(.text+0x203): undefined reference to `__const_udelay'
Segmentation fault

Expected Results:  only "undefined reference to .." and no segmentation fault
