Subject[PATCH AUTOSEL 5.8 29/29] scripts/kallsyms: skip ppc compiler stub *.long_branch.* / *.plt_branch.*
Date
From: Masahiro Yamada <masahiroy@kernel.org>

[ Upstream commit 516d980f85415d76ae3d0d2a871eb20243f46c95 ]

PowerPC allmodconfig often fails to build as follows:

LD .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms1
KSYM .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms1.o
LD .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms2
KSYM .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms2.o
LD .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms3
KSYM .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms3.o
LD vmlinux
SORTTAB vmlinux
SYSMAP System.map
Inconsistent kallsyms data
Try make KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS=1 as a workaround
make[2]: *** [../Makefile:1162: vmlinux] Error 1

Setting KALLSYMS_EXTRA_PASS=1 does not help.

This is caused by the compiler inserting stubs such as *.long_branch.*
and *.plt_branch.*

$ powerpc-linux-nm -n .tmp_vmlinux.kallsyms2
[ snip ]
c00000000210c010 t 00000075.plt_branch.da9:19
c00000000210c020 t 00000075.plt_branch.1677:5
c00000000210c030 t 00000075.long_branch.memmove
c00000000210c034 t 00000075.plt_branch.9e0:5
c00000000210c044 t 00000075.plt_branch.free_initrd_mem
...

Actually, the problem mentioned in scripts/link-vmlinux.sh comments;
"In theory it's possible this results in even more stubs, but unlikely"
is happening here, and ends up with another kallsyms step required.

scripts/kallsyms.c already ignores various compiler stubs. Let's do
similar to make kallsysms for PowerPC always succeed in 2 steps.
