Indeed, thanks; your config breaks as reported. With CONFIG_HIBERNATION
the kernel offset is 0, so we don't see this.

Kees, as far as I can tell you need another 0-terminated vmlinux.relocs
section for weak symbols. These should not be relocated if already 0.

Put this somewhere to test. It fails for x86_64, too:

diff --git a/init/main.c b/init/main.c
index 61b993767db5..c9e0195c792a 100644
--- a/init/main.c
+++ b/init/main.c
@@ -683,6 +683,12 @@ asmlinkage __visible void __init start_kernel(void)

ftrace_init();

+ {
+ extern void __attribute__((weak)) nonexistent_fn(void);
+ printk("nonexistent_fn = %p\n", nonexistent_fn);
+ BUG_ON(nonexistent_fn != NULL);
+ }
+
/* Do the rest non-__init'ed, we're now alive */
rest_init();
}
Cheers,
Rusty.
