Changes in 2.28:

  • Add support for locating separate debug info files using the build-id method, where the separate file has a name based upon the build-id of the original file.
  • This version of binutils fixes a problem with PowerPC VLE 16A and 16D relocations which were functionally swapped, for example, R_PPC_VLE_HA16A performed like R_PPC_VLE_HA16D while R_PPC_VLE_HA16D performed like R_PPC_VLE_HA16A. This could have been fixed by renumbering relocations, which would keep object files created by an older version of gas compatible with a newer ld. However, that would require an ABI update, affecting other assemblers and linkers that create and process the relocations correctly. It is recommended that all VLE object files be recompiled, but ld can modify the relocations if --vle-reloc-fixup is passed to ld. If the new ld command line option is not used, ld will ld warn on finding relocations inconsistent with the instructions being relocated.
  • The nm program has a new command line option (--with-version-strings) which will display a symbol's version information, if any, after the symbol's name.
  • The ARC port of objdump now accepts a -M option to specify the extra instruction class(es) that should be disassembled.
  • The --remove-section option for objcopy and strip now accepts section patterns starting with an exclamation point to indicate a non-matching section. A non-matching section is removed from the set of sections matched by an earlier --remove-section pattern.
  • The --only-section option for objcopy now accepts section patterns starting with an exclamation point to indicate a non-matching section. A non-matching section is removed from the set of sections matched by an earlier --only-section pattern.
  • New --remove-relocations=SECTIONPATTERN option for objcopy and strip. This option can be used to remove sections containing relocations. The SECTIONPATTERN is the section to which the relocations apply, not the relocation section itself.
