    SubjectRe: linux-next: Tree for March 8 (BROKEN: arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S? Debian's binutils/as?)
    From
    Hi,

    my build of linux-next (next-20110308, the same with the one from
    yesterday) is broken.
    (I translated the German output.)

    [ build.log ]
    AS arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.o
    /home/sd/src/linux-2.6/linux-2.6.38-rc7/debian/build/source_i386_none/arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S:
    Assembler messages:
    /home/sd/src/linux-2.6/linux-2.6.38-rc7/debian/build/source_i386_none/arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S:1421:
    Error: .size expression does not evaluate to a constant
    make[6]: *** [arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.o] Fehler 1 (Error 1)

    make[4]: *** [arch/x86] Fehler 2 (Error 2)
    make[4]: *** Warte auf noch nicht beendete Prozesse... (Waiting for
    unfinished jobs...)

    I am not sure if this is a problem of Debian's binutils snapshot from
    binutils-2_21-branch (Debian-version: 2.21.0.20110302-1) from sid/i386
    or this is only a problem for x86, but I just want to let you know.

    FYI: The previous binutils (2.21.0.20110216-2) works fine.

    I have tried with reverting the last two changes to
    arch/x86/kernel/entry_32.S in linux-next:

    "x86: Use {push,pop}_cfi in more places" (see [1])
    "x86, asm: Cleanup unnecssary macros in asm-offsets.c" (see [2])

    Reverting both or [1] or [2] breaks with Debians as (2.21.0.20110302-1).

    BTW, [3] has a complete GIT history for the above file.

    So, I am unsure from where the problem exactly aroses.
    If this a known issue (and a fix around) or rings a bell to you, let
    me and others know.

    Thanks in advance.
