Subject[PATCH 4.19 81/91] lkdtm: support llvm-objcopy
Date
From: Nick Desaulniers <ndesaulniers@google.com>

commit e9e08a07385e08f1a7f85c5d1e345c21c9564963 upstream.

With CONFIG_LKDTM=y and make OBJCOPY=llvm-objcopy, llvm-objcopy errors:
llvm-objcopy: error: --set-section-flags=.text conflicts with
--rename-section=.text=.rodata

Rather than support setting flags then renaming sections vs renaming
then setting flags, it's simpler to just change both at the same time
via --rename-section. Adding the load flag is required for GNU objcopy
to mark .rodata Type as PROGBITS after the rename.

This can be verified with:
$ readelf -S drivers/misc/lkdtm/rodata_objcopy.o
...
Section Headers:
[Nr] Name Type Address Offset
Size EntSize Flags Link Info Align
...
[ 1] .rodata PROGBITS 0000000000000000 00000040
0000000000000004 0000000000000000 A 0 0 4
...

Which shows that .text is now renamed .rodata, the alloc flag A is set,
the type is PROGBITS, and the section is not flagged as writeable W.
