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:

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.

Regards,
