Secondly, I noted a number of test suite failures in the ld component
while building binutils.
Building binutils 18.104.22.16810419-2 from Debian (also with my fix tls
patch) I get:
=== ld tests ===
Running target unix
FAIL: Build libpr9676-4a.so
It passes on amd64 and powerpc. Amd64 has in the readelf output of
libpr9676-4a.so the following line:
52: 0000000000000650 6 FUNC LOCAL DEFAULT 12 foo
(and similarly powerpc) which is tested for by (and matches) the
following regular expression:
+[0-9]+: +[0-9a-f]+ +[0-9a-f]+ +FUNC +LOCAL +DEFAULT +[0-9]+ +_?foo
that is in pr9676.rd.
But the output of readelf of libpr9676-4a.so on Alpha contains the
45: 00000000000007c0 8 FUNC LOCAL DEFAULT [<other>: 80]
That is, it contains an extra "[<other>: 80]" which does not match the
regular expression in the test.
So my question is, what is this "[<other>: 80]"? Does it matter? Is
this failure a false report?
