Subject[PATCH 2/2] arm64: Kconfig: ptrauth: Add binutils version check to fix mismatch
Date
Recent addition of ARM64_PTR_AUTH exposed a mismatch issue with binutils.
9.1+ versions of gcc inserts a section note .note.gnu.property but this
can be used properly by binutils version greater than 2.33.1. If older
binutils are used then the following warnings are generated,

aarch64-linux-ld: warning: arch/arm64/kernel/vdso/vgettimeofday.o: unsupported GNU_PROPERTY_TYPE (5) type: 0xc0000000
aarch64-linux-objdump: warning: arch/arm64/lib/csum.o: unsupported GNU_PROPERTY_TYPE (5) type: 0xc0000000
aarch64-linux-nm: warning: .tmp_vmlinux1: unsupported GNU_PROPERTY_TYPE (5) type: 0xc0000000

This patch enables ARM64_PTR_AUTH when gcc and binutils versions are
compatible with each other. Older gcc which do not insert such section
continue to work as before.

This scenario may not occur with clang as a recent commit 3b446c7d27ddd06
("arm64: Kconfig: verify binutils support for ARM64_PTR_AUTH") masks
binutils version lesser then 2.34.
