binutils: add patch to fix AArch64 glibc build issue
The autobuilders are not able to build glibc on AArch64 since we moved to the internal toolchain backend as the default for AArch64. The reason is that the cross-ld segfaults while linking of the glibc utilities. Unfortunately, the issue has so far been impossible to reproduce outside of the autobuilder CI loop itself: even on the same machine, in the same chroot, the issue does not appear. Today, Will Newton helped me analyze a bit further the problem. In the logs of the build machine, we have found that the following segfault notification matched the dates of the autobuilder failures: /var/log/syslog:May 15 10:39:20 sd-56966 kernel: [767023.832598] ld[6846]: segfault at 1b2c002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fffaa308df8 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] /var/log/syslog.2.gz:May 13 07:58:24 sd-56966 kernel: [585094.434264] ld[17761]: segfault at 154b002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fff0d400168 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] /var/log/syslog.3.gz:May 12 20:24:08 sd-56966 kernel: [543558.227915] ld[14841]: segfault at 2706002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fffc08d41c8 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] /var/log/syslog.4.gz:May 11 19:51:59 sd-56966 kernel: [455484.523033] ld[50162]: segfault at 1f00002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fff14a02328 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] /var/log/syslog.4.gz:May 12 05:13:37 sd-56966 kernel: [489085.120089] ld[32067]: segfault at 2430002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fffc448db48 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] /var/log/syslog.6.gz:May 9 15:20:38 sd-56966 kernel: [266948.197141] ld[13483]: segfault at ff0002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fff7e4fe948 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] /var/log/syslog.7.gz:May 8 16:45:08 sd-56966 kernel: [185853.688607] ld[1757]: segfault at 20b1002 ip 00000000004caf80 sp 00007fffd07d5ae8 error 4 in ld[400000+1b9000] See http://autobuild.buildroot.org/?reason=glibc-2.18-svnr23787&arch=aarch64 for the autobuilder results. So, the segfault always happens while accessing an address 2 bytes after the beginning of a page: it looks like a buffer overflow, which gets triggered because the object is placed towards the end of the previous page, and crosses over the next, unallocated page. Moreover, we looked at the 0x4caf80 address in an AArch64 cross-ld built by Buildroot, and it turns out that it is part of the iterative_hash() function. This nicely correlates with the patch that Will Newton had pointed in http://lists.busybox.net/pipermail/buildroot/2014-May/095881.html as a fix for invalid memory accesses reported by Valgrind in the AArch64 cross-ld, specifically around the same area of 'ld'. Therefore, even though we have not been able to reproduce the issue outside of the autobuilders, and cannot confirm that the patch is fixing the issue, I propose to integrate this binutils patch into Buildroot. It is anyway an upstream binutils patch, which fixes a real problem. Signed-off-by: Thomas Petazzoni <thomas.petazzoni@free-electrons.com> Signed-off-by: Peter Korsgaard <peter@korsgaard.com>
