Subject[PATCH v4 00/17] Warn on orphan section placement
Date
v4:
- explicitly add .ARM.attributes
- split up arm64 changes into separate patches
- split up arm changes into separate patches
- work around Clang section generation bug in -mbranch-protection
- work around Clang section generation bug in KASAN and KCSAN
- split "common" ELF sections out of STABS_DEBUG
- changed relative position of .comment
- add reviews/acks

A recent bug[1] was solved for builds linked with ld.lld, and tracking
it down took way longer than it needed to (a year). Ultimately, it
boiled down to differences between ld.bfd and ld.lld's handling of
orphan sections. Similarly, the recent FGKASLR series brough up orphan
section handling too[2]. In both cases, it would have been nice if the
linker was running with --orphan-handling=warn so that surprise sections
wouldn't silently get mapped into the kernel image at locations up to the
whim of the linker's orphan handling logic. Instead, all desired sections
should be explicitly identified in the linker script (to be either kept or
discarded) with any orphans throwing a warning. The powerpc architecture
actually already does this, so this series extends coverage to x86, arm,
and arm64.

All three architectures depend on the first four commits (to
vmlinux.lds.h), and arm64 depends on the 5th and 6th patches (to ctype,
and efi/libstub). As such, I'd like to land this series as a whole. Given
that two thirds of it is in the arm universe, perhaps this can land via
the arm64 tree? If x86 -tip is preferred, that works too. Or I could
just carry this myself in -next. In all cases, I would really appreciate
reviews/acks/etc. :)

Thanks!
