Package: nasm
Version: 0.98.08-1
Severity: normal

Hmm... took me almost an hour to track this one down after my (small) OS
kept crashing VMware for no apparent reason.

Assemble the following two files to ELF objects:

--- CUT f1.asm ---
struc s1
.s11	resd 1

bits 32
section .stext exec

t1:	mov		eax,[sbss_1]

section .data
section .bss

resb 0x2000

global sbss_1
sbss_1 resd 1
--- END CUT f1.asm ---

--- CUT f2.asm ---
bits 32
section .text
extern sbss_1
t2:	mov		eax,[sbss_1]
--- END CUT f2.asm ---

...and link them to an executable. You will find that the address used for
sbss_1 in f1.o is out by 0x2000 (or whatever you change the 0x2000 to in
f1.asm above), for example:

Script started on Sun Mar  3 02:20:35 2002
tom@cronos:~/proj/t$ nasm -felf f1.asm
tom@cronos:~/proj/t$ nasm -felf f2.asm
tom@cronos:~/proj/t$ ld -o test f1.o f2.o
ld: warning: cannot find entry symbol _start; defaulting to 08048080
tom@cronos:~/proj/t$ objdump --disassemble test

test:     file format elf32-i386

Disassembly of section .text:

08048080 <t2>:
 8048080:	a1 8c b0 04 08       	mov    0x804b08c,%eax
Disassembly of section .stext:

08048085 <t1>:
 8048085:	a1 8c d0 04 08       	mov    0x804d08c,%eax

Furthermore, this bug occurs ONLY when a structure is defined at the top of
f1.asm as above - if the structure is defined after section .stext is
introduced, or the structure is not defined at all then the bug does not
appear (although adding section .other before the structure does not stop
the bug from occuring). Neither does it appear if we rename the section
.stext to .text.

The "section .data" line is also required to trigger the bug.

I am afraid I have absolutely no idea what is causing this. It could well be
a bug in ld (binutils, I don't know.
