in analogy with commit a627eb35864d5c29a3c3300dfe83745ab1e7a00f
On 32bit systems long long arguments are passed in a special way
to some syscalls; this accidentally got copied to the AArch64 port.
The following interfaces were broken: fallocate, fanotify, ftruncate,
posix_fadvise, posix_fallocate, pread, pwrite, readahead,
i386 and x86_64 versions already had the .text directive; other archs
did not. normally, top-level (file scope) __asm__ starts in the .text
section anyway, but problems were reported with some versions of
clang, and it seems preferable to set it explicitly anyway, at least
for the sake of consistency between archs.
remove __syscall declaration where it is not needed (aarch64, arm,
microblaze, or1k) and add the hidden attribute where it is (mips).
commit f3ddd173806fd5c60b3f034528ca24542aecc5b9 broke the build by
using "bx" instead of "br".
this overhaul further reduces the amount of arch-specific code needed
by the dynamic linker and removes a number of assumptions, including:
- that symbolic function references inside libc are bound at link time
via the linker option -Bsymbolic-functions.
- that libc functions used by the dynamic linker do not require
access to data symbols.
- that static/internal function calls and data accesses can be made
without performing any relocations, or that arch-specific startup
code handled any such relocations needed.
removing these assumptions paves the way for allowing libc.so itself
to be built with stack protector (among other things), and is achieved
by a three-stage bootstrap process:
1. relative relocations are processed with a flat function.
2. symbolic relocations are processed with no external calls/data.
3. main program and dependency libs are processed with a
reduction in arch-specific code is achived through the following:
- crt_arch.h, used for generating crt1.o, now provides the entry point
for the dynamic linker too.
- asm is no longer responsible for skipping the beginning of argv
when ldso is invoked as a command.
- the functionality previously provided by __reloc_self for heavily
GOT-dependent RISC archs is now the arch-agnostic stage-1.
- arch-specific relocation type codes are mapped directly as macros
rather than via an inline translation function/switch statement.
POSIX requires the sem_nsems member to have type unsigned short. we
have to work around the incorrect kernel type using matching
The shm_info struct is a gnu extension and some of its members do
not have shm* prefix. This is worked around in sys/shm.h by macros,
but aarch64 didn't use those.
the previous values (2k min and 8k default) were too small for some
archs. aarch64 reserves 4k in the signal context for future extensions
and requires about 4.5k total, and powerpc reportedly uses over 2k.
the new minimums are chosen to fit the saved context and also allow a
minimal signal handler to run.
since the default (SIGSTKSZ) has always been 6k larger than the
minimum, it is also increased to maintain the 6k usable by the signal
handler. this happens to be able to store one pathname buffer and
should be sufficient for calling any function in libc that doesn't
involve conversion between floating point and decimal representations.
x86 (both 32-bit and 64-bit variants) may also need a larger minimum
(around 2.5k) in the future to support avx-512, but the values on
these archs are left alone for now pending further analysis.
the value for PTHREAD_STACK_MIN is not increased to match MINSIGSTKSZ
at this time. this is so as not to preclude applications from using
extremely small thread stacks when they know they will not be handling
signals. unfortunately cancellation and multi-threaded set*id() use
signals as an implementation detail and therefore require a stack
large enough for a signal context, so applications which use extremely
small thread stacks may still need to avoid using these features.
The unwind code in libgcc uses this type for unwinding across signal
handlers. On aarch64 the kernel may place a sequence of structs on the
signal stack on top of the ucontext to provide additional information.
The unwinder only needs the header, but added all the types the kernel
currently defines for this mechanism because they are part of the uapi.
This adds complete aarch64 target support including bigendian subarch.
Some of the long double math functions are known to be broken otherwise
interfaces should be fully functional, but at this point consider this
Initial work on this port was done by Sireesh Tripurari and Kevin Bortis.
