So, I'm going to make one more MI change in ld.elf_so, that will
Basically, I'm going to eliminate the vestiges of
-DRTLD_RELOCATE_SELF. This means that the flag itself, and all the
`dodebug' arguments passed down to various functions, will all go
All platforms will be expected to prebind ld.elf_so before calling
main(). I have already adjust 6 platforms to do this right; the only
that does not is x86_64. Fixing it is essentially a matter of copying
20 lines of code from one of the other mdreloc.c implementations, and
adding a stub to call the self-relocate function.
The upside of this change is that ld.elf_so will be smaller and
slightly faster. Also LD_DEBUG will work correctly on all platforms.
Any further questions may be directed to me.
