Subject[PATCH 4.14 07/30] objtool: Support Clang non-section symbols in ORC generation
Date
From: Josh Poimboeuf <jpoimboe@redhat.com>

commit e81e0724432542af8d8c702c31e9d82f57b1ff31 upstream.

When compiling the kernel with AS=clang, objtool produces a lot of
warnings:

warning: objtool: missing symbol for section .text
warning: objtool: missing symbol for section .init.text
warning: objtool: missing symbol for section .ref.text

It then fails to generate the ORC table.

The problem is that objtool assumes text section symbols always exist.
But the Clang assembler is aggressive about removing them.

When generating relocations for the ORC table, objtool always tries to
reference instructions by their section symbol offset. If the section
symbol doesn't exist, it bails.

Do a fallback: when a section symbol isn't available, reference a
function symbol instead.
