Thanks for the ldscript. I'm now running a kernel linked with your
ldscript and binutils 2.8, after recompiling half a dozen files with
-G 0. The updated pmax/conf/Makefile.pmax and mips/conf/kern.ldscript
will appear in the official sources just as soon as I know what
copyright to put on the ldscript.
I'm going to stick with
GP?= -G 0
until we understand how extern references from LKMs to data in the
kerne's .sbss/.sdata segments can be resolved. It's easy enough to
Does -G 8 really work without defining __GP_SUPPORT__? Weird...
and thanks again!
