ld: Relocation truncated to fit: R_ARM_THM_JUMP24 for relocation to PLT entry

Bug #1696686 reported by Diana Picus on 2017-06-08
This bug affects 1 person
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
Fix Released
binutils (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

SRU acceptance criteria:
 - the package builds
 - the newly added tests pass, no regressions to previous builds
 - needs only testing on armhf, no other changes.

Original bug report:

When linking large applications, we sometimes see this error. This is affecting the LLVM ARM buildbots.

The issue was fixed upstream:

Could you please backport it to Xenial?

I have applied the patch on top of binutils_2.26.1.orig.tar.gz + binutils_2.26.1-1ubuntu1~16.04.3.diff.gz as found here:

It applies cleanly (except the ChangeLog) and passes make check.

Please help us by testing this new package. See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation on how to enable and use -proposed.Your feedback will aid us getting this update out to other Ubuntu users.

Hey Matthias! I see the xenial upload has a bunch of autopkgtests failing against -proposed. Could you take a look if any of those are related?

Matthias Klose (doko) wrote :

the binutils change is limited to arm32 only. so you have to look for other things causing these "regressions".

the linux/armhf failure seems to be unrelated, packaging error?
