Subject[PATCH 4.9 08/83] powerpc/boot: Ensure _zimage_start is a weak symbol
Date
4.9-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------

From: Joel Stanley <joel@jms.id.au>

[ Upstream commit ee9d21b3b3583712029a0db65a4b7c081d08d3b3 ]

When building with clang crt0's _zimage_start is not marked weak, which
breaks the build when linking the kernel image:

$ objdump -t arch/powerpc/boot/crt0.o |grep _zimage_start$
0000000000000058 g .text 0000000000000000 _zimage_start

ld: arch/powerpc/boot/wrapper.a(crt0.o): in function '_zimage_start':
(.text+0x58): multiple definition of '_zimage_start';
arch/powerpc/boot/pseries-head.o:(.text+0x0): first defined here

Clang requires the .weak directive to appear after the symbol is
declared. The binutils manual says:

This directive sets the weak attribute on the comma separated list of
symbol names. If the symbols do not already exist, they will be
created.

So it appears this is different with clang. The only reference I could
see for this was an OpenBSD mailing list post[1].

Changing it to be after the declaration fixes building with Clang, and
still works with GCC.

$ objdump -t arch/powerpc/boot/crt0.o |grep _zimage_start$
0000000000000058 w .text 0000000000000000 _zimage_start
