Subject[PATCH 4.14 29/89] objtool: Fix seg fault with gold linker
Date
4.14-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@redhat.com>

commit 2a0098d70640dda192a79966c14d449e7a34d675 upstream.

Objtool segfaults when the gold linker is used with
CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y and CONFIG_UNWINDER_ORC=y.

With CONFIG_MODVERSIONS=y, the .o file gets passed to the linker before
being passed to objtool. The gold linker seems to strip unused ELF
symbols by default, which confuses objtool and causes the seg fault when
it's trying to generate ORC metadata.

Objtool should really be running immediately after GCC anyway, without a
linker call in between. Change the makefile ordering so that objtool is
called before the linker.
